Time: From Earth Rotation to Atomic Physics ebook

by Kenneth P. Seidelmann,Dennis D. McCarthy


Dennis D. McCarthy, P. Kenneth Seidelmann. It outlines the progression of time based on sundials, water clocks, and the Earth's rotation, to time measurement using pendulum clocks, quartz crystal clocks, and atomic frequency standards.

Dennis D. Online ISBN: 9781108178365. Time scales created as a result of these improvements in technology and the development of general and special relativity are explained. Filling the need for a book that conveys the current technology as well as the underlying history and physical background, this book tells physicists and engineers how to measure time to the precision required for modern-day use.

McCarthy worked in the Time Service and Earth Orientation Departments of the U. S. Naval Observatory . Naval Observatory (USNO) for the past 40 years, reaching the position of Director of Time at USNO. He has been involved in both the improvements in time keeping and time transfer, and the advances in the observational determination, analyses and prediction of accurate Earth orientation. Dr. McCarthy is the author of a large number of papers on time scales and Earth orientation

Dennis D. In the twenty-first century, we take the means to measure time for granted, without contemplating the sophisticated concepts on which our time scales are based. This volume presents the evolution of concepts of time and methods of time keeping up to the present day. It outlines the progression of time based on sundials, water clocks, and the Earth's rotation, to time measurement using pendulum clocks, quartz crystal clocks, and atomic frequency standards

Filling the need for a book that conveys the current technology as well as the underlying history and physical background, this book tells physicists and engineers how to measure time to the precision required for modern-day use. The authors draw on their longstanding research experience with timekeeping and high-precision measurement to cover the use of satellites in measuring earth movement variation and the influence of the moon, while also dwelling on such topics as timekeeping aboard satellites and time transfer.Indispensable for high-precision measurements of processes in astrophysics, and relevant for measurement, navigation and communication, this monograph can be equally used as a course book or as accompanying work at advanced undergraduate or graduate level.
