Hi Alex,
I have some (very immature) code for astronomical algorithms:
The main implamentation is the VSOP87D.
This is tested against the very same data coming from

There are utilities classes to compute polinomials (but not
sparse ones, given that in astronomical algorithms you do not
usually meet them...) and angles...

I was not (yet) interested in interfacing with external libraries, but more
on the algorithms themselves.

Have a look and let me know. BEWARE: code is very IMMATURE.
