    Re: Lunars using Bennett

    Frank has provided:

    "a link to an analysis by Dave Walden about clearing lunars using
    Bennett's tables where he worked out the statistical details. The results
    are certainly better than I would have expected but naturally not as good as
    you can get with purpose-built tables

    I thought this analysis was interesting although the paper doesn't seem to state clearly whether the 4-figure tables in the book, developed for another purpose, were used in the analysis, or whether perhaps the 6-figure tables, developed specifically for lunars, were used?

    I suspect it may have been the shorter book version, based on:
     "references from his book, provide details
    needed to reproduce the numbers in the Table
    but would like Dave to confirm this, if possible.
