I do know the general theory of the motions, and I studied some celestial mechanics.
It seemed their aim to give every branch of physics the same precision as celestial mechanics.
We pass now to the second branch of celestial mechanics viz.
In works on celestial mechanics a single formula may fill a whole chapter.
Up to the present, celestial mechanics has attacked only the solar system or certain systems of double stars.
It was like attempting to understand all mathematics, from addition to celestial mechanics, at a glance.
