    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 79.95

  • Splitting The Secondby A Jones

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 43.95

By the 1940s it was clear that the length of the day fluctuated unpredictably and with it the length of the second. Astronomers wanted to redefine the second in terms of the motions... more...

  • Caesar?s Calendarby Denis Feeney
