  • The Antikythera Mechanism and the Mechanical Universe | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    not entirely understood showed regularity and could be handled mathematically to provide both explanation and prediction of celestial phenomena Most of us have at least some hazy idea of the fundamental shift that came through the work of Copernicus Kepler Galileo and Newton The idea of a Mechanical Universe running rather like a clock tends to be associated with these Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century pioneers It remains a useful and perhaps comforting analogy Yet recent investigations based around the Antikythera Mechanism an artefact from ancient Greece reinforce a view that the Mechanical conception has been around for a much longer time indeed certainly as far back as the third century BC The extent of mechanical design expertise existing around 100 BC as witnessed by the Antikythera Mechanism comes as a great surprise to most people It is certainly a very ingenious device often referred to as The World s First Computer although it is really a sophisticated mechanical astronomical calculator with its functions pre determined rather than programmable In this review the structure and functions of the Antikythera Mechanism are described The astronomy cosmology and technology inherent in the machine fit surprisingly well into the context of its contemporary Classical world A strong claim will be made for the influence of such mechanisms on the development of astronomical and philosophical views based on literary reference There is evidence that the technology persisted until its spectacular and rather sudden re appearance in Western Europe around 1300 AD From then on it is not hard to chart a path through the astronomical clocks of the 16th Century to Kepler s aim expressed in a 1605 letter to show that the heavenly machine is not a kind of divine live being but a kind of clockwork and on to the widespread development of

  • On the epoch of the Antikythera mechanism and its eclipse predictor | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    Evans James Journal Title Archive for History of Exact Sciences Pages 1 82 ISSN 0003 9519 Abstract The eclipse predictor or Saros dial of the Antikythera mechanism provides a wealth of astronomical information and offers practically the only possibility for a close astronomical dating of the mechanism We apply a series of constraints in a sort of sieve of Eratosthenes to sequentially eliminate possibilities for the epoch date We find that the solar eclipse of month 13 of the Saros dial almost certainly belongs to solar Saros series 44 And the eclipse predictor would work best if the full Moon of month 1 of the Saros dial corresponds to May 12 205 BCE with the exeligmos dial set at 0 We also examine some possibilities for the theory that underlies the eclipse times on the Saros dial and find that a Babylonian style arithmetical scheme employing an equation of center and daily velocities would match the inscribed times of day quite well Indeed an arithmetic scheme for the eclipse times matches the evidence somewhat better than does a trigonometric model URL http dx doi org 10 1007 s00407 014 0145 5 DOI 10 1007 s00407 014 0145 5 Bookmark Search
