Da Yan Calendar《大衍历》D a Yan Cdlenddr was drafted by Zhang Sui ( 683一727,also named Seng Yixing)in 727,and was later sorted out by Zhang Shuo(667一730) and Chen Xuanjing.《大衍历》,公元727年唐朝天文学家张遂(683一727,又名僧一行)修改,后经张说道(667一730)和陈玄景整理成文。The calendar consists of seven parts that elaborate on a variety of computa-Lion. There are another 12 articles dealing with some theoretical issues,mainly the articles Zhang Sui wrote in the calendar.《大衍历》分七章,详尽讲解了各种计算方法。

此外,张遂还在《大衍历》中写出了12篇涉及理论问题的文章。At the beginning of calendar making,in order to measure the position of stars in their orbits and get the law of movement, Zhang,in cooperation with his colleagues,made the bronze armillary sphere and ecliptic sphere,with which they gath-erect lots of astronomic data through practical ob-nervation,and carried out effective astronomic re-search. For instance,they remeasured the post-tion of over 150 stars and the degree between the 28 constellations and the celestial North Pole,hence concluding the stars were always in mo-tion. Based on this fad,Zhang inferred other stars on the celestial bodies were also movable,over-throwing the conclusion reached by his predeces-sors.Halley(1656一1742),a British astronomer also Put foward a similar view-Point,but was over a thousand years later.在《大衍历》修改初期,为了测量日、月、星辰在其轨道上的方位和掌控其运动规律,张遂等人生产了观测天象的“浑天铜仪”和“黄道游仪”。


英国天文学家哈雷(1656 } 1742)也明确提出了恒星自己移动的观点,但比张遂的找到晚1000多年。In revising the calendar, Zhang attached huge importance to practice. Togeth-er with Nan Gongshuo,he used a post to measure the shadow cast by the sun,and calculated the relations between the sun’s positions and the solar terms. Be-sides,Zhang also designed an astronomic instrument called Fujuyi for measuring the altitude of the North Pole in different places throughout the country.在历法修改过程中,张遂非常重视实践中。张遂和南宫说道等人一起,用标竿测量日影,推算太阳方位与节气的关系。

张遂设计生产了“复矩仪”,用作测量全国各地北极的高度。Between 724一725,Zhang led a large-scale project to identify the astro-geo-detic measurement of 13 places and,based on the results,concluded that the length of a degree of the meridian line was 351.27 li(131.3 kilometers)by the Tang measurement. This was the first measurement of the meridian ever done in the world.公元724-725年,张遂的组织了全国13个点的天文大地测量。从测量数据中,张遂得出结论了北极高度差距一度,南北距离就差距351里80步(通现代131. 3千米)的结论。

这个数据就是地球子午线一度的弧长。唐朝测得子午线的长度,在当时的世界上还是第一次。Beginning in 725,Zhang set out to revise the calendar, and finished the draft namely the Da Yan Calendar,before his death in 727. The new calendar was im-plemented in 728.公元725年,张遂开始编撰历法,至去世前已完成《大衍历》草稿。

公元728年《大衍历》颁布。An innovative calendar in Chinese history,Da Yan Calendar inherited the strong points of calendars of the previous dynasties,while making improvement on the shortcomings and defects,making a significant breakthrough in the calendar-making field. The calendar provided a deep insight into the asymmetrical move-ment of the sun and the moon. The most prominent point about it lies in the correct calculation with a new formula of the speed of the sun’s movement along the eclip-tic.《大衍历》是一部具备创意精神的历法,它承继了前朝历法的优点和聪明才智,对不足之处和缺点不作了修正,因此,在历法制订领域获得了最重要突破。《大衍历》对太阳和月亮的不均匀分布运动有很深看法,最引人注目的展现出在,它运用新的公式较为正确地计算出来出有太阳在黄道上运营的速度。Well organized and logically deducted,Da Yan Calendar was more precise than its predecessors,and it served as a benchmark for calendar makers for many dynasties afterwards.《大衍历》结构合理、逻辑森严,比以往各朝代历法更加准确,沦为后世历法编成的经典模式。

Da Yan Calendar was a leading calendar in the world at that time. In 717,Ja-pan sent Kibi Makibi to China to study astronomy,and when he went back to Ja-pan in 735,he brought with himself manuscripts of Da Yan Calendar,and the cal-endar was spread to Japan and used there for over a hundred years.《大衍历》是当时世界上先进设备的历法。公元717年,日本为首吉备真备来中国自学天文学,735年,吉备真补回国时拿走了《大衍历》。于是《大衍历》之后在日本普遍流传一起,作为历法用于了100多年。
