Abstract : Contents: Methods of calculation based on Molodenskiy's integral equation for the disturbing potential; Verification on a model of the principle of numerical integration for the computation of the disturbing potential, based on Molodenskiy's integral equation; Evaluation on a model of the earth of the individual terms of the correction to Stoke's approximation of the coefficients of expansion of the disturbing potential; Evaluation of the mean value of the square of inclinations in the individual sections of a mountain area; On the calculation of normal heights; Use of firstapproximation formulas for the computation of the characteristics of the earth's gravitational field; Tables for the computation of the nonlinearity of the influence of the heights of the topographic massif on plumb line deflections; Template used for the computation of the influence of adjacent zones upon the height of the QuasiGeoid and the deflection of the plumb line during the evaluation of the influence of the given zones by Molodenskiy's formulas; Computation of first and second vertical derivatives of gravity from maps of its anomalies; Evaluation with the aid of terrestrial models of the precision of Numerov's formula for the vertical gradient of gravity; Comments on the short report of I. F. Monin on the computation of deflections of the plumb line.
