Workshop

 One of TAMAS main output will be the publication of a collective book presenting case studies around which we explore the methodological challenges surrounding the analysis of astronomical tables. This book will be an important contribution to the field, not least for the wide range of cultures it will cover. Although the database will focus primarily on traditions emerging with and after the formation of Arabic mathematical astronomy, the book will include studies of earlier traditions including the Cuneiform and Greek material. More significantly, the book will be first publication of this breath that deals with methodological issues regarding the analysis of astronomical tables.
The collective work around this book is organised around two one week workshops convening the whole TAMAS team at the Paris Observatory in June 2015 and 2016.
