Produktbeschreibung
The quantity of numbered minor planets is now approaching half a million. Together with this Addendum, the sixth edition of the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names, which is the IAU's official reference for the field, now covers more than 19,000 named minor planets. In addition to being of practical value for identification purposes, the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names provides authoritative information about the basis for the rich and colorful variety of ingenious names, from heavenly goddesses to artists, from scientists to Nobel laureates, from historical or political figures to ordinary women and men, from mountains to buildings, as well as a variety of compound terms and curiosities. This Addendum to the 6th edition of the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names adds approximately 2200 entries. It also contains many corrections, revisions and updates to the entries published in earlier editions. This work is an abundant source of information for anyone interested in minor planets and who enjoys reading about the people and things minor planets commemorate.

Rezensionen
Aus den Rezensionen: "... Der hier vorliegende ... Band umfasst die Periode 2003 bis 2005. In ihm sind alle in dieser Periode neu mit Namen versehenen Kleinplaneten und deren Entdeckungsumstände registriert. Zusätzlich findet man ... auch Korrekturen und Ergänzungen zu den früheren Bänden ... Zwar bleibt die gewohnte Grundstruktur des Gesamtwerks erhalten, es kommen jedoch ein paar äußerst nützliche Neuerungen hinzu. Auf den gewohnt umfangreichen Anhang muss ... niemand verzichten. Die Tabellen werden ... aktualisiert ... Das neue Konzept des Schmadelschen 'Dictionary' erscheint dem Rezensenten stimmig. ..." (Gerhard Klare, in: Sterne und Weltraum, April 2007, S. 97 f.)
From the reviews of the sixth edition: "German astronomer and historian Schmadel (Heidelberg Univ.) has published a sixth edition ... of this annotated compilation of the named minor planets, with more than 7,000 entries added since the last edition. ... Following the planet's name is a short descriptive history of whom the planet was named for. ... Although this book is intended for special users, its organization and annotations can give budding scientists a glimpse into the history of astronomy. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals/practitioners." (R. J. Havlik, Choice, Vol. 50 (7), March, 2013)
