Greetings I have been trying to find the orbit of Mercury using the geodesic equations with the Schwarzschild Metric, more precisely I have been using the equations derived in "General Relativity, An Introduction for Physicists" by M.P. Hobson, etc, that is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

<math>\left(1-\frac{2\mu}{r}\right) \frac{dt}{d\tau} =k </math><br>
