Formulae for the Mariner

 "This useful book...[fills] the demand for a quick 'at a glance' mathematical reference book for the mariner. There are eight chapters: Mathematics, Navigation, Seamanship, Tanker Operations, Shiphandling, Stability and Trim, Electricity, and International System of Units (S.I.). "For the mariner who is not able to remember all the functions, formulae, and terms of the mathematics of his profession (and this must be most of us), this book is an important ready reference....The author, a professional teacher of marine subjects, is to be congratulated...." —International Hydrographic Bulletin 1986. 93 pp. Illustrations. Tables. 8½ × 11. Paper.
