Editorial Reviews

In his fascinating introductory chapter the author reminds us how remarkably much of human knowledge (and, at least in ancient times, behavior) derives from the eclipses by which binary astrophysical objects most conspicuously announce themselves. The remainder of this lovely little monograph provides professional astronomers with a detailed account of the solutions of the analytical problems confronted when one seeks to extract maximal information from eclipse data of various types. The author has devoted a lifetime to this pretty topic, and his language (particularly his mathematical language) is invariably explicit and clear. (NW) Annotation c.
