N THE YEARS 295-283 B.c., Timocharis observed positions of the moon and I of Venus with respect to the fixed stars.’ About 280 B.c., Aristarchos of Samos proposed the heliocentric hypothesis.2 At about the same time, a man named Dionysios established an astronomical calendar based on the assumption of a tropical year of 365 y4 days3 An anonymous observer used this calendar to date his observations of Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter made in the years 270-239 B.c .~ The observations of Timocharis and… 

From heliocentrism to epicycles: A commentary on pre-Ptolemaic astronomy

If one wants to translate the heliocentric picture of planets moving uniformly on circular orbits about the sun to the perspective of a terrestrial observer, using classical (ancient) geometric means

Holding or Breaking with Ptolemy's Generalization: Considerations about the Motion of the Planetary Apsidal Lines in Medieval Islamic Astronomy

TLDR
In medieval Islamic astronomy, the Ptolemaic generalization in the case of the equality of the motions of the apogees remained untouchable, despite the notable development of planetary astronomy, in both theoretical and observational aspects, in the late Islamic period.

Geometrising the Micro-Cosmos on a Supermanifold

For more than half a century, covariant and differential geometric methods have been playing a central role in the development of Quantum Field Theory (QFT). After a brief historic overview of the

TLDR
A fully-frame covariant formalism for inflation is introduced by taking into account conformal transformations in addition to field reparametrizations by examining the impact of isocurvature effects on the inflationary observables in a frame-covariant manner.

Unified Field Theory and Foundation of Physics

The paper "Unified field theory" (UFT) (1) opened a new chapter of physics. The main model of UFT is Torque Grids that unify Space, Time, Energy and Force. The configuration of invisible particles

Drifting Clock and Lunar Cycle

TLDR
An experiment is proposed, consisting of a Java UDP program that performs simple tests that conclude that the two clocks, in different geographical locations, are drifting throughout the twenty four hour day.
