Astronomy on the Personal Compurter provides the reader with a thorough introduction to the computations of celestrial mechanics, which are of particular significance for carrying out astonomical observations. Covering as it does everthing from astronomical and comutational theory to the construction of rapid and accurate application programs, this book supplies the necessary knowledge and software solutions for determining and predicting - positions of the Sun, Moon, and planats - rise and set times - physical eqhemerides of the Sun and major planets - cometary and minor-lanetary positions (including perturbations) - phases of the Moon - central line and local circumstances of solar eclipses - stellar occulations by the Moon - orbital elements from three observations (including multiple solutions) - coordinates from celestial photographs.
