Gravitomagnetics, a Simpler Appraoch Applied to Rotating Bodies

Authors: H. Ron Harrison

In reference [1] the basics of the new approach are outlined but in this paper more details are given where the method is applied to rotating bodies. Application to single bodies is often referred to as the de Sitter effect and when applied to rotating bodies it is known as the Lense-Thirring effect. This new approach gives the same form of result as the generally accepted equations but with a different factor for the Lense-Thirring effect. This variation is discussed.
