By C.M. Linton

Since man first looked towards the heavens, a great deal of effort has been put into trying to predict and explain the motions of the Sun, Moon, and planets. Developments in man’s understanding have been closely linked to progress in the mathematical sciences. Whole new areas of mathematics, such as trigonometry, were developed to aid astronomical calculations, and on numerous occasions throughout history breakthroughs in astronomy have been possible only because of progress in mathematics. This book describes the theories of planetary motion that have been developed through the ages, beginning with the homocentric spheres of Eudoxus and ending with Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
