What's Mathematics of Frame Dragging ?

    What's Mathematics of Frame Dragging ???

    Since 1960, scientists have suggested that general relativity's prediction of frame dragging can be tested. The recent launch of Gravity Probe B satellite was to do this test. Can someone help me find the math behind this test?


    Found some information in the book by Ignazio Ciufolini and John Archibald Wheeler called "Gravitation and Inertia." The brief account of GP-B starts from page 332 to page 333. I am hoping to find more detailed math than this.
