About this book

In 1997 Jean Meeus wrote Mathematical Astronomical Morsels, a collection of about 60 chapters on various aspects of mathematical astronomy that were independent of one another and that could be read in any order. Each were updated versions of articles written at different times and for several different European and Canadian journals, principally Heelal, the monthly journal of the Belgian Dutch-language astronomical society 'Vereniging voor Sterrenkunde' (VVS).

The book turned into a series, of which this is the fifth volume.
