Dictionary of minor planet names : addendum to fifth edition, 2006-2008 by Lutz D Schmadel( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quantity of numbered minor planets is now approaching half a million. Together with this Addendum, the sixth edition of the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names, which is the IAU's official reference for the field, now covers more than 19,000 named minor planets. In addition to being of practical value for identification purposes, the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names provides authoritative information about the basis for the rich and colorful variety of ingenious names, from heavenly goddesses to artists, from scientists to Nobel laureates, from historical or political figures to ordinary women and men, from mountains to buildings, as well as a variety of compound terms and curiosities. This Addendum to the 6th edition of the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names adds approximately 2200 entries. It also contains many corrections, revisions and updates to the entries published in earlier editions. This work is an abundant source of information for anyone interested in minor planets and who enjoys reading about the people and things minor planets commemorate

The spiral structure of our galaxy by Wilhelm Becker( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of the organization of a Symposium on Spiral Structure came at a special meeting of Commission 33 on Spiral Structure during the 12th General Assembly of the IAU in Prague, 1967. So much interest was shown during this meeting that one of us proposed a special Symposium on the 'Spiral Structure of Our Galaxy' for 1969. The response was immediate and it was finally agreed upon holding the Symposium in Basel, a center of galactic research in the center of Europe. During the next months a special 'List of Problems', related to this Symposium, was sent to many prospective participants by the president of Commission 33. This stimulated an increase of interest in problems of galactic spiral structure and a con centrated effort on some problems. The organizing Committee of the Symposium was composed of Drs. L. Woltjer (president), W. Becker, A. Blaauw, B.J. Bok, G. Contopoulos, F.J. Kerr, C.C. Lin, S.W. McCuskey and S.B. Pikel'ner. Most of the work for the organization of the Symposium was carried by Dr. L.W oltjer. The Local Committee, composed of Drs. W. Becker, U.W. Steinlin, R.P. Fenkart, and G.A. Tammann, made every effort to secure the success of the Symposium. Most of the credit goes to Dr. Steinlin. The Symposium was supported financially by the IAU and by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The meetings took place at the University of Basel, which provided also secretarial help and many other facilities

IAU Symposium 40, on Planetary Atmospheres, was held at Marfa, Texas, in the Paisano Hotel, October 26-31, 1969, hosted by The University of Texas at Austin and the McDonald Observatory of the University of Texas. The Organizing Committee consisted of: Dr. Tobias Owen (Illinois Institute of Technology), Dr. Carl Sagan (Cornell University), Dr. John Hall (Lowell Observa tory), Dr. Arvydas Kliore (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), Academician Georgi I. Petrov (Institute of Cosmic Research, Soviet Academy of Sciences), Dr. V.I. Moroz (Stern berg Institute), Dr. H.C. van de Hulst (Leiden University). Local arrangements were under the care of Dr. Harlan Smith (McDonald Observa tory), assisted especially by Dr. Ronald Schorn (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), Mr. Curtis Laughlin (McDonald Observatory), and Miss Virginia Church (University of Texas); also by Dr. Joseph Chamberlain (Kitt Peak National Observatory), Dr. Maurice Marin (McDonald Observatory), Mr. and Mrs. J. Bergstrahl and Mrs. K. MacFarlane (McDonald Observatory), and Dr. Donald Rea (NASA Headquarters). The scientific program was divided into three parts; Venus, Mars, and the outer planets. Detailed programs for these sections, and their subsequent editing, were respectively in the hands of the undersigned. It was possible to hold the Symposium because of generous sponsorship by the Executive Committee of the International Astronomical Union, including the provi sion of a travel grant for assisting younger astronomers to attend, and also including the active attention and assistance of the Assistant General Secretary, Dr. C. de Jager
