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 first-approximation formulas for the computation of the characteristics of the earth's gravitational field; Tables for the computation of the non-linearity 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 Quasi-Geoid 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.
