About the Cover
The image on the cover shows the retrogade motion of a planet, in which it appears to stop in its orbit and reverse direction before continuing on. Claudius Ptolemy, an astronomer from the second century A. D, codified the Greek geocentric view of the universe, and rationalized the apparent retrograde motion of the planets using epicycles. The Ptolemaic system remained the accepted wisdom until the Polish scholar Copernicus proposed a heliocentric view in 1543.
