Newtonian theories of gravity fail to describe certain minute but detectable phenomena. The existence of such phenomena spurred the development of improved theories of gravi- tation. The current leading theory is general relativity. This project involved mathematical examination of various implications of general relativity, including the perihelion precession of orbits and de Sitter precession in space-time near static masses, and Lense-Thirring precession in spacetime near slowly rotating masses.
