    Those polynomials are created by "fitting" to proper almanac data that has been computed from the laws of physics (meaning, almost entirely, just Isaac Newton's good-ole inverse-square law of gravitation)

    Thanks. I understand newtonian mechanics and am relieved that this gentleman's theories still appliy to motions of the moon!!!  The polynomials made it seem that there was a brand new super-complicated theory of planetry motion.

    In this era of the JPL numerical integrations and the internet are the polynomials of historic inetrest only?
