      4th Regensburg Workshop on Mesopotamian Astral Sciences. This workshop brings together specialists from across the Mesopotamian astral aim is to deepen our understanding of the concepts, theories, procedures and practices in the various branches of Mesopotamian astral science, their genesis and change over time, and to explore more thoroughly the connections between astronomy. The Saros cycle of synodic months played an important role in Late Babylonian astronomy. It was used to predict the dates of future eclipse possibilities together with the times of those eclipses and underpinned the development of mathematical lunar theories. The excess length of the Saros over a whole number of days varies due to solar and lunar anomaly between about 6 and 9 h.

      Babylonian calendar, chronological system used in ancient Mesopotamia, based on a year of 12 synodic months; i.e., 12 complete cycles of phases of the Moon. This lunar year of about days was more or less reconciled with the solar year, or year of the seasons, by the occasional intercalation of an extra about bc the beginning of the first month of the year, Nisanu, was. Babylonian mathematics (also known as Assyro-Babylonian mathematics) was any mathematics developed or practiced by the people of Mesopotamia, from the days of the early Sumerians to the centuries following the fall of Babylon in BC. Babylonian mathematical texts are plentiful and well edited. In respect of time they fall in two distinct groups: one from the Old Babylonian period (

We investigate "shell structure" from Babylonian times: periodicities and beats in computer-simulated lunar data corresponding to those observed by Babylonian scribes some years ago. This paper is the second of a multi-part examination of the creation of the Babylonian mathematical lunar theories known as Systems A and B.

Part I (Britton ) addressed the development of the empirical elements needed to separate the effects of lunar and solar anomaly on the intervals between syzygies.

This was accomplished in the construction of the System A lunar theory by an unknown. Aaboe, A. Some lunar auxiliary tables and related texts from the late Babylonian period. Det Kongelige Danske Videnskabernes Selskab, Matematisk-fysiske Meddelelser, (KDVSMM) MathSciNet; MATH; Google Scholar.

The most discussed and mysterious column within the Babylonian astronomy is column Φ. It is closely connected to the lunar velocity and to the duration of the Saros. This paper presents new ideas for the development and interpretation of column Φ.

It combines the excellent Goal-Year method (for the prediction of Lunar Six time intervals) with old ideas and practices from the “schematic.“Two Lunar Texts of the Achaemenid Period from Babylon”, Centaurus, xiv (), 1 – 22, esp.

In a later “saros”-tablet there occurs a column X which registers the difference between a year and 12 months; see Aaboe, A., Some lunar auxiliary tables and related texts from the Late Babylonian Period (Copenhagen, ), 28 – the cycle Use of the term “Saros” for the eclipse-cycle of lunar months was established by Edmond Halley inthough even after then some continued to call it the Chaldean Period or Cycle.
