Abstract: | Polynomial approximations for the empirical difference between Ephemeris and Universal Time are discussed in order to provide simple arithmetic means for computing purposes. The entire period 1972.6-1978.5 can be covered by a 12th degree polynomial with a mean error of less than one second. All coefficients are significant values well above the 3 sigma level of the mean coefficient errors. Coefficients, mean errors, and maximal residuals for polynomials of degree 8 to 16 are given as well as least-squares solutions fitting low-degree expressions to some smaller time intervals. |
