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.

This volume is designed especially for the use of the cadets of the U. S. Military Academy, as a supplement to the course in General Astronomy. It is therefore limited to that branch of Practical Astronomy which relates to Field Work.

The main theme of this review is a discussion of the mechanical and optical principles used in the various long baseline systems in operation around the world - LIGO, Virgo, TAMA300, LCGT, GEO600 - and in LISA, a proposed space-borne interferometer.
