Jacob ben Isaac Corsono
Jacob ben Isaac al-Corsono or Carsono or Carsi (also Abu Ishaq Ya'qub ibn Ishaq ibn Ya'qub, known as Ibn al-Qursunuh) was a Spanish astronomer of the fourteenth century.
He was commissioned by King Peter IV of Aragon to translate from Catalan into Hebrew the astronomical tables known as The Tables of Don Pedro, which, at Don Pedro's command, had been begun by Maestre Piero Gilebert, and finished by Gilebert's pupil, Dalmacio de Planis.
