The Jamahiriya solar calendar is thus similar to the many other solar calendars that have been used in Muslim communities since the early days of Islam for planning seasonal activities such as agriculture and tax-collecting that depend on the annual rhythm of the Sun.
A consequence of this peculiar mode of year reckoning in the Jamahiriya calendars is that the date of the death of the prophet Muhammad occurs both in the Jamahiriya lunar year 0 AJ as in the Jamahiriya solar year –42 DP.

I know that such calendars can not predict the exact day of a new moon or an eclipse without becoming excessively complicated.
This is because of eccentricity of the moon's orbit round the earth and the earth's orbit around the sun.

Peter Meyer sent me the results and I saw that all the cycles listed could be constructed by variations of my Yerm Calendar, where each yerm has 17 or 15 months alternating between 30 and 29 days, so that the first and last month have 30 days.
This forms the tabular Islamic calendar in which months are worked out by rules rather than by the first visible crescent.
The 40-yerm cycle would be a good adjustment of my Yerm calendar for the year 3000 CE.
