An approach investigates the applicability of a modified, symplectic leapfrog method with self-adjusted step-size control to the simulations of few-body Hamiltonian systems. The method is then applied to the direct calculation of the differential precession of Mercury due to general relativity and other planets. The Web extra is the appendices mentioned in the article.
