    Sorry. This is so esoteric in fineness that I cannot restate
    from recollection other than it is a minor trim to UT1 which
    assures by year workabiity of NO algorithms, including those
    once published as "Almanac for Computers". It generally has to
    do with achieving 1-arc second accuracy of computations.
    Really, I should have not mentioned it at all!
    The subject matter is covered in the Astronomical Almanac and
    further in "other publications", particularly by Seidleman.
    Try  http://aa.usno.navy.mil/AA/  and search on dynamic time
    and dynamical time for more authoritative information.
    Happy New Year to you and all!
