Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Essays on Medieval Computational Astronomy presents the table contents, and a list of figures. The book addresses the major issues in medieval astronomy, and offers examples of several of the cleverest solutions in tabular form. It concerns syzygies; specifically, the determination of the time interval from mean to true syzygy, where mean syzygy refers to a conjunction or opposition of the mean Sun with the mean Moon, and true syzygy refers to a conjunction or opposition of the true Sun with the true Moon.

Keywords: Medieval Computational Astronomy; syzygy
