Description

ChineseLeapMonths is a package for computing information about Chinese leap months and the date of Chinese New Year. It uses the functions of Nachum Dershowitz and Edward M. Reingold in their book "Calendrical Calculations", published by Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-56474-3. Their Lisp functions were translated into the Mathematica package Calendrica.m by Robert C. McNally. The current package requires the Calendrica.m package which is available from http://emr.cs.uiuc.edu/home/reingold/calendar-book/.
