Ephémérides des satellites de Jupiter, Saturne et Uranus pour 1988

Abstract : Since 1980, Connaissance des Temps has published ephemerides of the Sun, the Moon, the Planets and the Galilean Satellites of Jupiter as tables of Chebychev polynomials. From 1981, ephemerides of the First Eight Satellites of Saturn have been published under the same form in a supplement to the Connaissance des Temps. These ephemerides have been well received by the users ; hence, we now intend to enlarge the publication to incorporate other natural satellites of the planets. Starting from 1985, we have gathered in this booklet, the ephemerides of the Galilean Satellites of Jupiter, the First Eight Satellites of Saturn and the Five Satellites of Uranus. The representation does not use Chebychev polynomials. It appears that a mixed form of representation, involving secular and periodic terms and depending directly on time, allows sufficient accuracy and reduces the amount of numerical data to be published. Furthermore, it is very easy to use these tables. The Iist of the satellites, the ephemerides of which are published, is not limited and will be extended as soon as it is possible. Beside the tables, the present publication contains various data concerning the satellites of Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. We will also present, a formula which permits the calculation of the phenomena of the Galilean Satellites
