Astronomical Algorithms, 2nd edition
This handbook explains how to do astronomical calculations with a calculator or computer. Meeus covers everything from determining the tilt of Saturn's rings to precessing a star's coordinates for any epoch. The new edition includes new appendixes and added chapters about the Jewish and Moslem Calendars, and the satellites of Saturn. Numerical examples abound.

Mathematical Astronomy Morsels
Interested in the frequency of blue moons? Wonder how often the planets group in the same area of the sky? You'll find what you need in this masterful volume devoted to the detection of patterns and cycles in sky phenomena. Meeus offers detailed investigations into everything from planetary motions and lunar phases to the variability of sunspots and the dates of Easter.

Mathematical Astronomy Morsels III
Welcome, once again, to the crossroads where astronomy, mathematics, and arcane knowledge meet. In this third volume of his Morsels series, Belgian astronomer Jean Meeus deals masterfully with a host of new questions about eclipses and planetary conjunctions — things that anyone from a curious child to a serious skywatcher might wonder about. The sky’s rhythms are not strictly repetitive, as he proves time and again by finding entertaining quirks in the motions of the Moon and planets.

Mathematical Astronomy Morsels IV
In his Preface to Mathematical Morsels III Jean Meeus writes: We are living in a period of important astrophysical and cosmological research. Many astronomical journals and scientific books deal with subjects such as birth and evolution of stars, black holes, dark matter, gamma-ray bursts, supernova remnants or collisions between galaxies. Of course this is important matter, but one almost seems to have forgotten the `old' astronomy, the classical, mathematical science of the sky. And yet, without this fundamental astronomy modern research on the universe new would never have been possible.

Mathematical Astronomy Morsels V
Here Jean Meeus writes “Since the publication of our 4th Morsels book, we have accumulated a lot of new and interesting subjects in the field of mathematical astronomy, and there were enough of them to fill this fifth collection of Morsels. Apparently, an infinite number of possible topics do remain”. Morsels V contains 69 chapters divided into six categories: The Moon, Eclipses and Occultations, Planetary Phenomena and Varia. Additionally there is a cumulative Index for all five volumes along with corrections to Morsels I and IV.
