About the book Astronomical Algorithms In the field of celestial calculations, Jean Meeus has enjoyed wide acclaim and respect since long before microcomputers and pocket calculators appeared on the market.

Jewish and Moslem Calendars 71 Solar Coordinates Date of Easter 67 9. Already celebrated for his contributions to the literature of astronomical calculating, Belgian meteorologist Algoritgms Meeus has authored another helpful, though technical, compendium for the mathematically minded. Many of them have warmly acknowledged their debt or should haveciting the unparalleled clarity of his instructions and the rigor of his methods.

The text alone is helpful for understanding how the theories of celestial mechanics are applied in practice. We are currently shipping the June printing which corrects all known errors. Curve Fitting 35 5.

Rectangular Coordinates of the Sun The Parallactic Angle 97 The past 10 years, however, have seen a stunning revolution in how the world’s major observatories produce their almanacs. It quickly became the “source among sources,” even for other writers in the field. Dynamical Time and Universal Time 77 Passages through the Nodes Passages of the Moon through the Nodes Parabolic Motion Elliptic Motion Angular Separation The Calculation of some Planetary Phenomena Planetary Conjunctions Activation requires a response to an email that we will send to this address.

Perigee and Apogee of the Moon Between the Urania-ornamented covers of this book you get all kinds of time, atmospheric refraction, conjuctions, obliquity of the ecliptic, equinoxes and solstices, planetary ephemerides, lunar phases, eclipses, binary stars, and a whole lot more.

And now this Belgian astronomer has outdone himself yet again with Astronomical Algorithms! Ephemeris for Physical Observations of the Moon Apparent Place of a Star astronomiacl At the same time in Paris, the Bureau des Longitudes has been a beehive of activity aimed at describing these motions analytically, in the form of explicit equations.

Atmospheric Refraction Discussions are complete enough to make the equations fully understandable to the novice, and virtually every algorithm includes a fully worked numerical example. Yet until now the fruits of this exciting work have remained mostly out of reach of ordinary people.

The details have existed mainly on reels of magnetic tape in a form comprehensible only to the largest brains, human or electronic.
