Abstract:

The Multi-Parameter theory of spheroidal figures in hydrostatic equilibrium and the normal spheriods of the earth and moon are discussed. Investigations concerning the curvature of the plumbline are presented. The problem is to find a simple method for the reduction of phi and lambda for curvature of the plumbline, which gives a good approximation only from gravity measurement in small surroundings of the station and without any calculation of the effect of topography.
