Perigee and Apogee of the Moon Astronomical algorithms by jean meeus Separation With his special knack for computations of all sorts, the author has made the essentials of these modern techniques available to us all. The Ring of Saturn When he brought out his Astronomical Formulae for Calculators init was practically the only book of its genre.

Apparent Place of a Star Astronomical Algorithms is the reference to have for this. The past 10 years, however, have seen a stunning revolution in how the world’s major observatories produce their almanacs.

Stellar Magnitudes 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. Rectangular Coordinates of the Sun Ephemeris for Physical Observations of the Sun Curve Fitting 35 5.

Astronomical Algorithms, Second Edition by Jean Meeus direct from the Publisher

Binary Stars There are times when an amateur astronomer wants alborithms perform the computations that support his or her observations. The second edition contains new chapters about the Jewish and Moslem Calendars, and on the satellites of Saturn, and a new Appendix giving expressions polynomials astronomical algorithms by jean meeus the heliocentric coordinates of the giant planets Jupiter to Neptune from to And now this Belgian astronomer has outdone himself yet again with Astronomical Algorithms!

Bodies in a Straight Line Astronomical algorithms by jean meeus in Perihelion and Aphelion Illuminated Fraction of the Disk and Magnitude of a Planet Positions of the Satellites of Saturn Phases of the Moon Nutation and the Obliquity bby the Ecliptic Passages through the Nodes Dynamical Time and Universal Time 77 The details have existed mainly on reels of magnetic tape in a form comprehensible only to the largest brains, human or electronic.


Positions of the Planets asyronomical The Calculation of some Planetary Phenomena Already celebrated for his contributions astronomical algorithms by jean meeus the literature of astronomical calculating, Belgian meteorologist Jean Meeus has authored another helpful, though technical, compendium for the mathematically asronomical.

Elliptic Motion This is a very handy reference, well worth owning, even if you never have to perform a specific calculation.

Correction for Parallax 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. Passages of the Moon through the Nodes Sorting Numbers 55 7.
