The Nordtvedt Effect in Rotational Motion
 Physical Review D
, 1998
"... Rotational motion of extended celestial bodies is discussed in the framework of the Parametrized PostNewtonian (PPN) formalism with the two parameters fl and fi. A local PPN reference system of a massive extended body being a member of a system of N massive extended bodies is constructed. In the l ..."

. In the local PPN reference system the external gravitational field manifests itself only in the form of tidal potentials. Rotational equations of motion, which are then derived in the local reference system, reveal a special term in the torque analogous to the Nordtvedt effect in the translational equations
The Confrontation Between General Relativity And Experiment: A 1998 Update
, 1998
"... The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analysing them are reviewed. Einstein's equivalence principle (EEP) is well supported by experiments such as the Eotvos experiment, tests of special relativity, and the gravitational redshift experiment ..."

, and the Nordtvedt effect in lunar motion. Gravitational wave damping has been detected in an amount that agrees with general relativity to half a percent using the HulseTaylor binary pulsar, and new binary pulsar systems may yield further improvements. When direct observation of gravitational radiation from
Relativistic effects and solar oblateness from radar observations of planets and
, 2005
"... Abstract—We used more than 250 000 highprecision American and Russian radar observations of the inner planets and spacecraft obtained in the period 1961–2003 to test the relativistic parameters and to estimate the solar oblateness. Our analysis of the observations was based on the EPM ephemerides o ..."

POSSIBLE TIME VARIATIONS OF G IN SCALARTENSOR THEORIES OF GRAVITY
, 2002
"... We estimate the possible variations of the gravitational constant G in the framework of a generalized (BergmannWagonerNordtvedt) scalartensor theory of gravity on the basis of the field equations, without using their special solutions. Specific estimates are essentially related to the values of o ..."

Gravitomagnetism and its Measurements with Lunar Laser Ranging, LAGEOS Satellites and Gravity Probe B.
, 704
"... It is sometimes claimed that gravitomagnetism, measured by the LAGEOS satellites using the GRACE models [Ciufolini and Pavlis 2004], that might also be detected by refining the Gravity Probe B data analysis [Muhlfelder, Keiser and Turneaure 2007], has already been observed by Lunar Laser Ranging, L ..."

, LLR [Murphy, Nordtvedt and Turyshev 2007]. Here we show that there are two types of gravitomagnetic effects, the first one, measured by LLR, depends on the frame of reference being used in the analysis and can be eliminated by a coordinate transformation (see below), the second effect, measured
Gravitational Leakage into Extra Dimensions Probing Dark Energy Using Local Gravity, Phys
 Rev. D
"... The braneworld model of Dvali–Gabadadze–Porrati (DGP) is a theory where gravity is modified at large distances by the arrested leakage of gravitons off our fourdimensional universe. Cosmology in this model has been shown to support both “conventional ” and exotic explanations of the dark energy res ..."

Thus, this theory offers a local gravity correction sensitive to factors that dictate cosmological
