A modest level of mathematics is required, specifically the use of logarithms and of simple trigonometrical functions. A knowledge of physics beyond the general descriptive level of standard elementary astronomy textbooks, is not called for. Spectroscopy does not form a part of the programme of the exercises, except as a means of finding motions. The standard international (SI) system is used throughout for data and conversions.
