Abstract:

Sections 1 - 6 give the solution of the main problem for a spheroidal earth with the potential limited to the principal term and the second harmonic which contains the small factor k2. The solution is developed in powers of k2 in canonical variables by a method which is basically the same as that used in a different problem by von Zeipel 1916. The per iodic terms are divided in two classes The short-period terms contain the mean anomaly in their arguments the arguments of the long-periodterms are multiples of the mean argument of the perigee
