A package that deals with physical constants has recently been
added to the Mathsource Infocenter library.

For A to C, the constants included are as follows:

accelerationOfGravity, ageOfUniverse, ageOfUniverseInGYear,
astronomicalUnit, atomicMassConstant, avogadroConstant,
baryonDensityOfUniverse, bohrMagneton, bohrMagnetonIneV,
bohrRadius, boltzmannConstant, classicalElectronRadius,
comptonWavelength, comptonWavelengthReduced,
conductanceQuantum, constantOfGravitation, conversionConstant,
conversionConstantSquare, cosmicBackgroundTemperature.

The package was written by Vladislav Larin.
