TitleFundamentals of astrometry
Author(s)Jean Kovalevsky, P. Kenneth Seidelmann
Description1 online resource (xvi, 404 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteAstrometry encompasses all that is necessary to provide the positions and motions of celestial bodies. This includes observational techniques, instrumentation, processing and analysis of observational data, reference systems and frames, and the resulting astronomical phenomena. Astrometry is fundamental to all other fields of astronomy, from the pointing of telescopes, to navigation and guidance systems, to distance and motion determinations for astrophysics. In the last few decades, new observational techniques have enabled improvements in accuracy by orders of magnitude. Starting from basic principles, this 2004 book provides the fundamentals for this new astrometry at milli- and micro-arcsecond accuracies. Topics include: basics of general relativity; co-ordinate systems; vectors, tensors, quaternions, and observational uncertainties; determination and use of the celestial and terrestrial reference systems and frames; applications of new observational techniques; present and future star catalogues and double star astrometry. This comprehensive reference will be invaluable for graduate students and research astronomers
Contents NoteIntroduction -- New observational techniques -- Basic principles and coordinate systems -- Treatment of astronomical data -- Principles of relativity -- Apparent displacements of celestial objects -- Extragalactic reference frame -- Dynamical reference frame -- Terrestrial coordinate systems -- Earth orientation -- Stars -- Double and multiple star systems -- Astronomical phenomena -- Application of theory to observations

TitleAstronomical applications of astrometry : ten years of exploitation of the Hipparcos satellite data
Author(s)Michael Perryman
Description1 online resource (xxi, 670 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe Hipparcos satellite, developed and launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 1989, was the first space mission dedicated to astrometry - the accurate measurement of positions, distances, and proper motions of stars. Amongst the key achievements of its measurements are refining the cosmic distance scale, characterising the large-scale kinematic motions in the Solar neighbourhood, providing precise luminosities for stellar modelling, and confirming Einstein's prediction of the effect of gravity on starlight. This authoritative account of the Hipparcos contributions over the following decade is an outstanding reference for astronomers, astrophysicists and cosmologists. It reviews the applications of the data in different areas, describing the subject and the state-of-the-art before Hipparcos, and summarising all major contributions to the topic made by Hipparcos. It contains a detailed overview of the Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues, their annexes and their updates. Each chapter ends with comprehensive references to relevant literature

TitleHipparcos, the new reduction of the raw data
Author(s)Floor van Leeuwen
PublicationDordrecht?, Springer Verlag, 2007.
Description1 online resource (xxxii, 449 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteThe new reduction of the Hipparcos data presents a very significant improvement in the overall reliability of the astrometric catalogue derived from this mission. Improvements by up to a factor 4 in the accuracies for in particular brighter stars have been obtained. This has been achieved mainly through careful study of the satellite dynamics, and incorporating results from these studies in the attitude modelling. Data correlations, caused by attitude-modelling errors in the original catalogue, have all but disappeared. This book provides overviews of the new reduction as well as on the use of

TitleAstrometry for astrophysics: Methods, Models, and Applications
Author(s)William F. Van Altena (ed.)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxviii, 411p.
Abstract NoteThe field of astrometry, the precise measurement of the positions, distances and motions of astronomical objects, has been revolutionized in recent years. As we enter the high-precision era, it will play an increasingly important role in all areas of astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology. This edited text starts by looking at the opportunities and challenges facing astrometry in the twenty-first century, from space and ground. The new formalisms of relativity required to take advantage of micro-arcsecond astrometry are then discussed, before the reader is guided through the basic methods required to transform our observations from detected photons to the celestial sphere. The final section of the text shows how a variety of astronomical problems can be solved using astrometric methods. Bringing together work from a broad range of experts in the field, this is the most complete textbook on observational astrometry and is ideal for graduate students and researchers alike.
