quantities and tables
These pages are an electronic version of a notebook I started years ago, basically when I embarked on my PhD. Having little memory for formulae and numerical values of constants, I decided to copy them in a notebook that would follow me wherever I worked. This book has grown old and now it's a bit too old to carry around. Therefore I am gradually transferring it to a numerical support. This way I can consult it everywhere there is a computer (and there usually is a computer close to where I work) and you can use it too...
There is a vague order but since formulae were accumulated with time, there is no completeness. Here are the contents:
|Arp catalog||Astro Calculators||Precession tool||Elementary astronomy|
Although most of these formulae and values where gathered from many sources, there are a few books that I have used widely and that therefore deserve credit:
