From the Banks of the Euphrates: Studies in Honor of Alice Louise Slotsky
Although Near Eastern languages and the history of the exact sciences are known for being obscure and deliberately arcane to general audiences, Alice Slotsky has paradoxically established her legacy by exposing these topics to a wider audience.

Table 2.3 shows the same data calculated by means of Huber's visibility
programs.11 Meaningful results can be obtained only if care is taken to compare
corresponding visibility intervals rather than simply visibilities for the dates
A key element in these procedures was recognition that the sum of me+ge6 or ˇs
́u+na represented a day's change in the corresponding visibility phenomenon.
This recognition leads to the conclusion that the change of these phenomena
Getting the days of the Lunar Six right turns out to be trickier than calculating the
visibility intervals, and the procedures actually used are still unclear. Brack-
