8 Berlinski, David NEWTON'S GIFT How Sir Isaac Newton Unlocked the System of the World

DJ has very light shelfwear. ; Xviii, 217pp. In this witty, engaging, and often moving examination of Newton's life, David Berlinski recovers the man behind the mathematical breakthroughs. The story carries the reader from Newton's unremarkable childhood to his awkward undergraduate days at Cambridge and then to the astonishing year in which, working alone, he laid the foundation for his system of the world. Thereafter, Berlinski describes the creation of Newton's masterpiece, the Principia Mathematica, the monumental feuds that poisoned his soul and that wearied his supporters, and Newton's final re-creation of himself as the master of England's financial system. ; 217 pages

13 Pappus Of Alexandria; Alexander Jones (Ed. ) PAPPUS OF ALEXANDRIA: BOOK 7 OF THE COLLECTION [2 VOL.] Part I. Introduction, Text, and Translation; Part 2: Commentary, Index and Figures. Edited with Translation and Commentary
Springer-Verlag 1986 0387962573 / 9780387962573 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Light soiling to rear board of vol. 2 else books have very minor shelfwear. ; The seventh book of Pappus's Collection, his commentary on the Domain (or Treasury) of Analysis, figures prominently in the history of both ancient and modern mathematics: as our chief source of information concerning several lost works of the Greek geometers Euclid and Apollonius, and as a book that inspired later mathematicians, among them Viete, Newton, and Chasles, to original discoveries in their pursuit of the lost science of antiquity. This presentation of it is concerned solely with recovering what can be learned from Pappus about Greek mathematics. The main part of it comprises a new edition of Book 7; a literal translation; and a commentary on textual, historical, and mathematical aspects of the book. It proved to be convenient to divide the commentary into two parts, the notes to the text and translation, and essays about the lost works that Pappus discusses. The first function of an edition of this kind is, not to expose new discoveries, but to present a reliable text and organize the accumulated knowledge about it for the reader's convenience. Nevertheless there are novelties here. The text is based on a fresh transcription of Vat. Gr. 218, the archetype of all extant manuscripts, and in it I have adopted numerous readings, on manuscript authority or by emendation, that differ from those of the old edition of Hultsch. Moreover, many difficult parts of the work have received little or no commentary hitherto. ; 749 pages

16 Yeomans, Donald K. & Tao Kiang THE LONG TERM MOTION OF COMET HALLEY Accepted for the Publication in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society March 1981.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration 1981 Stapled wraps Fair 
Stapled wraps are water-stained. Former owner's name to front wrap (Masier) and small marginalia in red pen to 2 pages (corrections). Water-staining to edges of some pages. ; The orbital motion of comet Halley is numerically integrated back to 1404 BC. Starting with an orbit based on the 1759, 1682, and 1607 observations of the comet, the integration was run back in time with full planetary perturbations and nongravitational forces taken into account at each 0.5 day time-step. Small empirical corrections were made to the computed perihelion passage time in 837 and to the osculating orbital eccentricity in 800. In nine cases, the perihelion passage times calculated by Kiang (1971) from Chinese observations have been redetermined, and osculating orbital elements are given at each apparition from 1910 back to 1404 BC. ; Cometary Science Team Preprint Series, No. 4; 27 pages; Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, vol. 197, Nov. 1981, p. 633-646.
