Sfere cosmografiche e loro applicazione alla risoluzione di Problemi di Geographia Matemation

    Abstract

    THIS little book, as its title implies, shows how a class of simple problems in spherical trigonometry can be solved witlm approximation by mechanical methods. It is a form of exercise which has fallen into disrepute in this country, but practical computers will admit that there are times when an appeal to the globe is not without its uses. Such cases can occur in the transformation of coordinates, when the conditions of the problem make the choice of a quadrant uncertain. The author, however, is not so much concerned in providing assistance for the expert as in instructing the novice.
