Aldo Vitagliano (b. 1948), of the University of Naples, wrote the software program "Solex" based on personal simplifications of methods of celestial mechanics. This software allows high accuracy in computing ephemerides of solar-system bodies, including minor planets. The name was suggested by J. Meeus.
