Theory of the motion of the heavenly bodies moving about the sun in conic sections : a translation of Theoria motus by Carl Friedrich Gauss( Book )

75 editions published between 1809 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described by one reviewer as 'one of the most perfect books ever written on theoretical astronomy', this work in Latin by the German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855), the 'Prince of Mathematicians', derived from his attempt to solve an astronomical puzzle: where in the heavens would the dwarf planet Ceres, first sighted in 1801, reappear? Gauss' predicted position was correct to within half a degree, and this led him to develop a streamlined and sophisticated method of calculating the effect of the larger planets and the sun on the orbits of planetoids, which he published in 1809. As well as providing a tool for astronomers, Gauss' method also offered a way of reducing inaccuracy of calculations arising from measurement error; the primacy of this discovery was however disputed between him and the French mathematician Legendre, whose Essai sur la théorie des nombres is also reissued in this series

Theory of the combination of observations least subject to error : part one, part two, supplement = Theoria combinationis observationum erroribus minimus obnoxiae : pars prior, pars posterior, supplementum by Carl Friedrich Gauss( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1820s Gauss published two memoirs on least squares, which contain his final, definitive treatment of the area along with a wealth of material on probability, statistics, numerical analysis, and geodesy. These memoirs, originally published in Latin with German Notices, have been inaccessible to the English-speaking community. Here for the first time they are collected in an English translation. For scholars interested in comparisons the book includes the original text and the English translation on facing pages. More generally the book will be of interest to statisticians, numerical analysts, and other scientists who are interested in what Gauss did and how he set about doing it. An Afterword by the translator, G.W. Stewart, places Gauss's contributions in historical perspective
