Mathematical Astronomy in Medieval Yemen


This work surveys over 100 Yemeni astronomical manuscripts preserved in the libraries of Europe and the Near East. These sources attest to an active interest in mathematical astronomy in the Yemen from the 10th century to the 20th century, and the writings of various Yemeni astronomers of the 13th and 14th centuries are particularly impressive.
