Mathematical concepts – from numbers to computational systems
Mathematical astronomy can be defined as a technique for predicting astronomical phenomena using mathematical algorithms. Procedure texts contain verbal representations of such algorithms. This chapter offers a systematic analysis of the concepts and algorithms of Babylonian mathematical astronomy and their verbal representations in the procedure texts, using the tabular texts as a complementary source of information.
