Abstract

This paper is based on the study of the paper of Scardigli and Casadio[Eur.   Phys.   J.  C  (2015)  75:425]  where the authors computed the light deflection and perihelion precession for the Generalized Uncertainty Principle(GUP) modified Schwarzschild metric.  In the present work, we computed the gravitational tests such as Shapiro time delay,  gravitational redshift, and geodetic precession for the GUP modified Schwarzschild metric.  Using the results of Solar system experiments and observations, we obtain upper bounds for the GUP parameterβ.  Finally, we compare our bounds with other bounds in the literature.
