Interplanetary Torques

  • E. Schatzman


The interpretation of the difference between astronomical or universal time and the time given by a frequency standard (atomic time) is quite involved and requires a detailed analysis of the periodic fluctuations in the length of the day. Only the astrometrists can discuss thoroughly the validity of the assumptions underlying this analysis. A brief account is given here of the interpretation by Danjon (1962a, 1962b, 1962c), although other investigators are not completely in agreement with him.
