Abstract

The confusing situation of the nomenclature of the astronomical objects led us to build, as a first step, a dictionary of the designations presently used. The future publication of this work is supported by Commission 5 of IAU. A brief description of this dictionary, as well as a sample of it, is given here. The designations (acronyms) will be given, together with the format, the total number of objects, the type of objects, the code for the complete bibliographical reference, the signification of acronym… Nomenclature for X and y-ray sources, designations by constellations and descriptive designations will be dealt with as well. Good compilations are a considerable help in nomenclature problems; every effort should be made in order of: 1) urging specialists to build compilations 2) announce compilations in progress to Astronomical Data Centers and to the present authors.
