Elementary Mathematical Astronomy
by C. Barlow, G. Bryan
Publisher: University Correspondence College Press 1893
Number of pages: 442
The present volume has been compiled with the view of filling the gap between the many excellent popular and non-mathematical works on Astronomy, and the standard treatises on the subject, which involve high mathematics. It has not been assumed that the reader's knowledge of mathematics extends beyond the more rudimentary portions of Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry.

Sky surveys represent a fundamental data basis for astronomy. We use them to map in a systematic way the universe and its constituents. We review the subject, with an emphasis on the wide-field imaging surveys, placing them in a broader context.

An overview of the techniques of radio astronomy. It contains a short history, details of calibration procedures, coherent/heterodyne and incoherent/bolometer receiver systems, observing methods for single apertures and interferometers, etc.

The book explains how to handle real problems in astronomical data analysis using a modern arsenal of powerful techniques. It treats the methods of image, signal, and data processing that are proving to be both effective and widely relevant.

The main purpose of the volume is an exposition of the principal methods of determining latitude, azimuth, and time. Generally speaking, the limit of precision is that corresponding to the engineer's transit or the sextant.
