Abstract:

The present report attempts a systematic presentation and review of modern theories of the earths rotation precession, nutation, and polar motion for a rigid earth, a purely elastic earth, and the Poincare model consisting of a rigid mantle and a liquid core. Emphasis is on the treatment of an elastic earth on the basis of Liouvilles equation and on the consideration of the earths rotation as an eigenvalue problem. Author
