Content Summary

This work consists of a preface and two books. The first book (continens ipsam lunae theoriam) contains three parts: (1) Investigatio aequationum differentialium, motum lunae continentium; (2) Evolutio numerica aequationum pro binis coordinatis x et y, in praecedente parte constitutarum; (3) Evolutio numerica tertiae aequationis pro coordinata z. Then comes a continuation of part 2: Evolutio numerica aequationum pro iis membris coordinatarum x et y, quorum characteres involvunt inclinationem orbitae lunaris ad eclipticam. The second book (continens adplicationem theoriae lunae ad calculum astronomicum) contains two parts: (1) Comparatio formularum inventarum cum tabulis celeberrimi de Clairault; (2) Constructio tabularum astronomicarum ex formulis supra inventis.
