Abstract : The chapters in this circular reflect the six main subject areas described above. Each of the chapters contains a list of the relevant IAU resolutions, a summary of the recommendations, an explanatory narrative, and, in most chapters, a collection of formulas used in implementing the recommendations. The references for all chapters are collected in one bibliography at the end of the circular. 
Planetary encounter analysis on the B-plane: a comprehensive formulation
The B-plane is a fundamental tool to analyze planetary encounters of small bodies and spacecraft flybys. In this paper, we review the B-plane formulation with a full derivation of its coordinates and
Optical Reference Star Catalogs for Space Surveillance: Current Status and Future Plans
Abstract : The current status of existing star catalogs of relevance for Space Surveillance applications will be reviewed. Hipparcos and Tycho 2 provided reference stars with milliarcsecond (mas)
Relativistic Metrology: From Earth to Astrophysics
Till twenty years ago the basic concepts of special and general relativity were introduced by speaking of clocks and rods with an unspecified structure. Then the advances in atomic physics and in
Relativistic Reference Frames for Astrometry and Navigation in the Solar System
Astrophysical space missions deliver invaluable information about our universe, stellar dynamics of our galaxy, and motion of celestial bodies in the solar system. Astrometric space missions SIM and

DIVISION I / WORKING GROUP NOMENCLATURE FOR FUNDAMENTAL ASTRONOMY
The IAU Division I Working Group on Nomenclature for Fundamental Astronomy (NFA) was established by the IAU XXV General Assembly with the task of providing proposals for new nomenclature associated
Time references in US and UK astronomical and navigational almanacs
An astronomical or navigational almanac can best be thought of as a device for connecting an observer with celestial objects. For an observer with a known position and time the almanac allows the
