The current atlas is meant for somebody attracted to changing into accustomed to the lunar good points noticeable from the Earth. the most a part of this e-book comprises an in depth atlas of the close to part of the Moon, subdivided into seventy six sections with whole nomenclature as outhorized by way of the overseas Astronomical Union (lAU), together with contemporary amendments as much as 2003, each one part is observed by means of a «Whos who at the Moon» precis containing information regarding the participants whose names were given to lunar formations, and a quick description of the good points themselves. an extra sequence of libration-zone charts depict the difficult-to-observe area close to the Moons limb. ultimately, there's the «Fifty perspectives of the Moon» part that highlights the various lunar surfaces finest gains. Readers will locate a number of adjustments and updates during this variation of Atlas of the Moon. The atlas charts ore up to date to check the present IAU-approved lunar nomenclature (including fresh additions followed on the IAU basic meeting in 2000) the libration charts for the south polar quarter were changed with new ones that make the most of imagery from the Clementine spacecraft and Arecibo Observatory to teach extra aspect close to the pole and crater terminology is up-to-date during the atlas to mirror the phrases utilized by geologists. long gone are out of date phrases like «walled plains» or «Ring Mountains,» brought some time past by way of selenographers. additionally, the publication has been revised all through to include effects from the Galileo, Clementine, and Lunar Prospector missions. certainly, tables of lunar stages, colongitude, and eclipses ore up to date too.

A Bernstein Type Inequality for Derivatives of Rational Functions on Two Intervals

During this paper we determine an inequality for derivatives of rational fuinctions with a set denominator generalizing V. S. Videnskii's inequality to the case of 2 durations. To end up its asymptotic exactness, we use a brand new illustration of Akhiezer-Zolotarev fractions with the least deviation from zero on durations.
