The Motion of the Moonby Taylor and Francis
The passage of the Moon across the night sky has long been a familiar, but mysterious, sight to man. Newton, with his laws of motion and inverse square law of gravity, was able to predict all the planetary orbits, at least in principle. However, an exact solution of the Moon's motion in the gravitational fields of the Sun and Earth defeated Newton and all his successors.
The Motion of the Moon is a comprehensive account of the theoretical developments right up to the present day. All astronomers, physicists and mathematicians interested in the Moon will find this a very stimulating book.
