Abstract

An extended Riemannian metric tensor in a spherical gravitational field is used to deduce planetary equations of motion. The obtained planetary equations of motion are solved and the precession equation in the gravitational field of a spherical star is obtained. The precession equation reduces to the corresponding pure Newtonian equation in the order of
