## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear All,

I would be interrested by reading some original paper on the classical evaluation of the advance of the perihelion.

I found a few simplified models (see http://scitation.aip.org/vsearch/servlet/VerityServlet?KEY=AJPIAS&ONLINE=YES&smode=strresults&sort=chron&maxdisp=25&origquery=%28perihelion%29+&disporigquery=%28perihelion%29+&threshold=0&pjournals=&pyears=&possible1=perihelion&possible1zone=article&possible3=mercury&possible3zone=multi&bool3=and&OUTLOG=NO&viewabs=AJPIAS&key=DISPLAY&docID=1&page=1&chapter=0&aqs=" [Broken] e.g.). However, the relativistic correction represents about 10% of the total drift, and therefore these simplified models (5% precision) are not relevant in the context of the history of GR. It is necessary to:

Of course, I would like to find this material for free on the web.

Did some of you find such a gold mine?

Thanks,

Michel

However, the relativistic correction represents about 10% of the total drift, and therefore these simplified models (5% precision) are not relevant in the context of the history of GR. It is necessary to:

- either go back to the original calculations
- or find modern references on the exact calculations

Of course, I would like to find this material for free on the web.
