Description

Preface

The method of calculating the several Circumstances of the Solar Eclipse given in this’ book is a modern one’ based’ on the modern and accurate astronomy and astronomical tables. The circumstances’ of an. eclipse are- the time of the beginning, the middle and the end of the eclipse, magnitude of: the eclipse, together with the times of the two internal contacts in the’ case of a total solar and ‘lunar eclipses .and also of the annular eclipse or ring - forming eclipse ill the case of the Sun only and the points of contacts. The methods given in the ancient Hindu Astronomical books (or Siddhantas or Karana granthas or Vakya Systems) are very-crude and do not give satisfactory’ results for .the circumstances of an eclipse. This book is’ a self-contained: one and ,does not require the help of other books if the ordinary method of multiplication, and division is’ used. If, on the other hand, Logarithmic method is used a good book of tables containing (1) Logarithms of Numbers up to :1,00,000 or so and (2) Logarithms of trigonometrical Functions of Sine, Cosine, Tanient and Cotangent upto seven or five decimal places is required.

The method of ordinary multiplication and division: is better than the method of trigonometrical ‘tables, as it gives better results, though it is long, tedious, pains-taking and time-consuming. The employment of logarithmic tables is only a device to save labour and time; but this method is a little inferior and. can be adopted for our ordinary purposes. The logarithmic method must be used only by those who know the use of logarithms, and who want to learn logarithms and use them and not by others, Whenever’ you feel any difficulty or doubt while calculating a quantity (deducible from a Formula or Equation) by employing logarithms, it is always better that you calculate that quantity only by using the ordinary multiplication and division which will’ give correct results, as you will be more familiar with ordinary -multiplication and division than with logarithms. I have also given, in this book, some useful information or instructions about logarithmic tables.

In producing this book, I have consulted some useful and modern books on the" Theory of Eclipses." My thanks are due to William Chauvenet, R. Buchanan, Bessel, Gingel, Schraam, Oppolzer, Barlow and Bryan. Robert Ball, Simon Newcomb, Godfray, Hymers, Watson, and Doo Little,: whose works.

Meteorologists & Sri Kulkarni Librarian-all of the office of the Regional Meteorological Centre Madraso-as they have helped me with furnishing me with either necessary and rare books or instructions etc. about eclipses-which were of great help to me ill producing this book in the present .form, ,My thanks are .also-due: to Mr. P.

Preface

The method of calculating the several Circumstances of the Solar Eclipse given in this’ book is a modern one’ based’ on the modern and accurate astronomy and astronomical tables. The circumstances’ of an. eclipse are- the time of the beginning, the middle and the end of the eclipse, magnitude of: the eclipse, together with the times of the two internal contacts in the’ case of a total solar and ‘lunar eclipses .and also of the annular eclipse or ring - forming eclipse ill the case of the Sun only and the points of contacts. The methods given in the ancient Hindu Astronomical books (or Siddhantas or Karana granthas or Vakya Systems) are very-crude and do not give satisfactory’ results for .the circumstances of an eclipse. This book is’ a self-contained: one and ,does not require the help of other books if the ordinary method of multiplication, and division is’ used. If, on the other hand, Logarithmic method is used a good book of tables containing (1) Logarithms of Numbers up to :1,00,000 or so and (2) Logarithms of trigonometrical Functions of Sine, Cosine, Tanient and Cotangent upto seven or five decimal places is required.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
