Post-Newtonian limitations on measurement of the PPN parameters caused by motion of gravitating bodies
Metadata[+] Show full item record
We derive an explicit Lorentz-invariant solution of the Einstein and null geodesic equations for data processing of the time delay and ranging experiments in the gravitational field of moving gravitating bodies of the Solar system - the Sun and major planets. We discuss the general relativistic interpretation of these experiments and the limitations imposed by motion of the massive bodies on measurement of the parameters γ PPN, βPPN and δPPN of the parametrized post-Newtonian (PPN) formalism.
