Fundamentals of Astrometry Book Description:

Astrometry encompasses all that is necessary to measure the positions and motions of celestial bodies: observational techniques, instrumentation, processing and analysis of observational data, and reference systems and frames, as well as the resulting astronomical phenomena. It is fundamental to all other fields of astronomy, from the focusing of telescopes to navigation and guidance systems and distance and motion determinations for astrophysics. Starting from basic principles, this work provides the principles of astrometry at milli- and micro-arcsecond accuracies and will be an invaluable reference for graduate students and research astronomers.

This authoritative book presents the theoretical development of gravitational physics as it applies to the dynamics of celestial bodies and the analysis of precise astronomical observations. In so doing, it fills the need for a textbook that teaches modern dynamical astronomy with a strong emphasis on the relativistic aspects of
