Abstract: Corrections to the relativistic theory of orbits are discussed considering higher order approximations induced by gravitomagnetic effects. Beside the standard periastron effect of General Relativity (GR), a new nutation effect was found due to the ${\displaystyle cˆ{-3}}$ orbital correction. According to the presence of that new nutation effect we studied the gravitational waveforms emitted through the capture in a gravitational field of a massive black hole (MBH) of a compact object (neutron star (NS) or BH) via the quadrupole approximation. We made a numerical study to obtain the emitted gravitational wave (GW) amplitudes. We conclude that the effects we studied could be of interest for the future space laser interferometric GW antenna LISA.
