摘要The advance of perihelion, in particular for Mercury, is regarded as a classical test of general relativity, but a number of other (in some cases much larger) contributions to this phenomenon are seldom discussed in detail in textbooks. This paper presents a unified framework for evaluating the advance of perihelion due to (a) general relativity, (b) the solar quadrupole moment, and (c) planetary perturbations, the last in a ring model where the mass of each perturbing planet is "smeared out" into a coplanar circular orbit. The exact solution of the ring model agrees to within 4% with the usually quoted figure. Time-dependent contributions beyond the ring model contain some surprising features: they are not small, and some with long periods could mimic a secular advance.
