Abstract:

The report compares least-squares collocation methods for determining the earths gravitational field with geophysical inversion techniques. Both are underdetermined problems with strong structural similarities. Collocation is also considered from the point of view of representing the external gravitational field by means of analytic functions. Finally, the conceptual basis of least-squares collocation is briefly discussed. Author
