EtymologyEdit

Coined by Alexander Wylie and Li Shanlan in 1859 in their translation of John Herschel's Outlines of Astronomy:

行星攝動 [Classical Chinese, trad.]
行星摄动 [Classical Chinese, simp.]
From: John Herschel (侯失勒約翰), 1849. Outlines of Astronomy, Chapter 5. Translated into the Chinese by Alexander Wylie (偉烈亞力) and Li Shanlan (李善蘭) as《談天》in 1859.[1][2]
Qián shù juàn lǚ yán, yuè yǔ xíngxīng yú Kèbái'ěr suǒdìng sānlì wài, shàngyǒu xiǎochā, míngyuē shèdòng. [Pinyin]
In the progress of this work, we have more than once called the reader's attention to the existence of inequalities in the lunar and planetary motions not included in the expression of Kepler's laws, but in some sort supplementary to them, and of an order so far subordinate to those leading features of the celestial movements. These inequalities are known, in physical astronomy, by the name of perturbations.

PronunciationEdit


Note: Sometimes pronounced "haang4 sing1" to distinguish from 恆星恒星 (hang4 sing1).
