Force and geometry in Newton's Principia by François de Gandt( )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book François De Gandt introduces us to the reading of Newton's Principia in its own terms. The path of access that De Gandt proposes leads through the study of the geometrization of force. The result is a highly original meditation on the sources and meaning of Newton's magnum opus. In Chapter I De Gandt presents a translation of and detailed commentary on an earlier and simpler version of what in 1687 became Book I of the Principia; here in clearer and starker outline than in the final version, the basic principles of Newton's dynamics show forth.

The Hill-Brown theory of the Moon's motion : its coming-to-be and short-lived ascendancy (1877-1984) by Curtis Wilson( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hill-Brown theory of lunar motion was, from its completion in 1908 to its retirement in 1984, the most accurate model of the moon's orbit. The mathematical, philosophical, and historical interest in the analytic solution of the lunar problem using the Hill-Brown method still engages celestial mechanicians, and is the primary focus of this work. This book, in three parts, describes three phases in the development of the modern theory and calculation of the Moon's motion. Part I explains the crisis in lunar theory in the 1870s that led G.W. Hill to lay a new foundation for an analytic solution, a preliminary orbit he called the "variational curve." Part II is devoted to E.W. Brown's completion of the new theory as a series of successive perturbations of Hill's variational curve. Part III describes the revolutionary developments in time-measurement and the determination of Earth-Moon and Earth-planet distances that led to the replacement of the Hill-Brown theory in 1984. Although some calculus and differential equations are included, the text is largely accessible without advanced knowledge in these areas. Amateurs of astronomy, as well as instructors and scholars of the general history of science, will find this book of significant interest
