Abstract:

Recently, Audretsch, Dehnen, and Honl 1967 have proposed what they state to be a crucial test of the solar oblateness hypothesized theoretically by Dicke 1964 and inferred observationally by Dicke and Goldenberg 1967. The purpose of this Letter is to show that the observation in question does not represent a crucial test, in fact, since it actually yields a result falling within the limits permitted by the corresponding residual.
