dragging of inertial frames

dragging of inertial frames

[′drag·iŋ əv ə¦nər·shəl ′frāmz]
(relativity)
A relativistic effect whereby, loosely speaking, a spinning body drags space around with it; this causes a gyroscope in orbit about the earth to display a precession distinct from the geodetic precession. Also known as frame dragging; Lense-Thirring effect.

In all these cases, the ISCO radius decreases for increasing [mu], this can be understood as a result of the dragging of inertial frames induced by the presence of the magnetic dipole, we elaborate more on this below.
In particular, it is shown that an intense magnetic field induces corrections in the Keplerian, precession and oscillation frequencies of the radial and vertical motions of the test particles as well as in the dragging of inertial frames.
The angular momentum and the energy of the ISCO decrease for increasing dipole moment as a consequence of the dragging of inertial frames.
