Mathematical Astronomy Morsels

Posted by Steve Holmes2 at 14:09 on 2010 Nov 05

Over the last few years I have developed an interest in the sort of "recreational" aspects of astronomical computing popularised by Jean Meeus in his well-known series of books 'Mathematical Astronomy Morsels'. I have researched a number of similar topics myself, which are available to view on my website (http://www.steveholmes.net/astro), and have also conducted email conversations with a number of the more well-known practitioners in the field. Now that I have joined the BAA I wondered what sort of interest there might be in topics of this sort among the membership.The Computing Section Director suggested I might post to this forum to see if there were any like-minded souls out there, so please reply if you would like to engage in some computational discussions that require an enquiring mind rather than a detailed knowledge of orbit calculations!
