  • Lars E. Sjöberg
Part of the International Association of Geodesy Symposia book series (IAG SYMPOSIA, volume 106)


Solutions to the free and the fixed geodetic boundary problems are presented for a non-spherical Earth. The solutions become the classical integral formulas for a spherical boundary.
