Synopsis

Until recently, minor planet name citations were scattered in the astronomical literature and the origin of many names remained obscure. The IAU Commission 20 in 1988 established a study group to elucidate the meanings of asteroid names: later on the author continued collecting and indexing all new relevant data. This dictionary is the culmination of more than a decade's work. In addition to being of practical value for identification purposes, the collection provides an interesting historical insight into the work of those astronomers who over two centuries vested their affinities in a rich and colourful variety of ingenious names, from heavenly goddesses to more prosaic constructions. This is a CD-ROM version of the fourth revised and enlarged edition
