The IAU 2009 system of astronomical constants: the report of the IAU working group on numerical standards for Fundamental Astronomy
Keywords: Numerical standards, Fundamental Astronomy, Fundamental constantsAbout the paper Full text
In the 2006–2009 triennium, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group on Numerical Standards for Fundamental Astronomy determined a list of Current Best Estimates (CBEs). The IAU 2009 Resolution B2 adopted these CBEs as the IAU (2009) System of Astronomical Constants. Additional work continues to define the process of updating the CBEs and creating a standard electronic document.
