    Kepler's Path to the Construction and Rejection of His First Oval Orbit for Mars.E. J. Aiton - 1978 - Annals of Science 35 (2):173-190.
    When Kepler concluded that the orbit of Mars was not a circle, he was led to the belief that the orbit was an oval touching the circle at the apsides and lying within the circle at other points. In the definition of the oval, physical hypotheses played a primary role. Two forces were involved; a tractive force arising from the effect of the solar rays rotating with the sun, and a directing force arising from a natural instinct of the planet (...)

    Gorai Kinzō's Study of Leibniz and the I Ching Hexagrams.E. J. Aiton & Eikoh Shimao - 1981 - Annals of Science 38 (1):71-92.
    When Bouvet discovered the relationship between the binary arithmetic of Leibniz and the hexagrams of the I ching—in reality only a purely formal correspondence—he sent to Leibniz a woodcut diagram of the Fu-Hsi arrangement, which provides the key to the analogy. This diagram, in a re-drawn version, was first published by Gorai Kinzō in a study of Leibniz's interpretation of the I ching and Confucianism which has been influential in providing, indirectly, the principal source for the accounts of Wilhelm and (...)

    An Unpublished Letter of Leibniz to Sloane.E. J. Aiton - 1981 - Annals of Science 38 (1):103-107.
    Soon after receiving Bouvet's interpretation of the hexagrams of the I ching as binary numbers, Leibniz communicated this application of his binary arithmetic to Hans Sloane in a letter published here for the first time. The letter also included a report on the observations of the variable star in the neck of the Swan by Gottfried Kirch. Sloane sent a copy of the scientific parts of the letter to Flamsteed.
