An Eleventh-century Manual of Arabo-Byzantine Astronomy


Jones, A. An Eleventh-century Manual of Arabo-Byzantine Astronomy. 1987
O. Neugebauer has written an excellent commentary on the anonymous "Methods of Computing Various Astronomical Hypotheses". The present volume is intended to complement Neugebauer's commentary by supplying a critical edition and translation of the "Methods", along with notes that mostly concern textual problems and the identification of sources in Arabic astronomy, aspects of the work that are less exhaustively treated by Neugebauer.
