Nearly every possible type of astronomical constant and numerical quantity is included in this handy volume for professional astronomers and students. The main difference between this work and Lang's Astrophysical Formulae (Sci Ref QB461.L36 1980) should be apparent from the titles-this work contains specific data, not formulae derivation and use.
