Raymond Arthur Lyttleton (1911-95) was a British astronomer who won
the Royal Society Royal Medal in 1965 for significant contributions
to his field. In this book, which was first published in 1953,
Lyttleton presents an account of advances in relation to a
classical problem of mathematical astronomy. The text is mainly
concerned with those parts of the theory most directly involved in
determining the evolution of gravitating liquid masses. The
important conclusion is reached that the dynamical evidence is
against the so-called 'fission process' of binary system formation.
This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in astronomy
and the history of science.
