Paper Abstract

Within natural sciences, astronomy was the first discipline, by a margin of more than two thousand years, to be developed into the form of precise mathematical theory. Based on the ideas of the Greek astronomer Aristarchos of Sarnos (310-250 B.C.), Nicholas Copernicus developed during the period of 1507 until 1514 a mathematical theory of the improved measurements of planetary motions performed by Arabic astronomers. In view of the fact that the Sun itself did not appear in Copernican models, it was outside of this theory that the planetary orbits should lie in a plane with in-planar Sun35.
