Abstract : It is demonstrated that the method proposed by I. F. Monin (Astronomicheskiy zhurnal (Astronomical Journal). 1963, XL, No. 1, pp. 179-183) is not applicable to practical use. It is further shown that the first and the second methods of Molodensky (Trudy TsNIIGAiK (Transactions of the Central Scientific-Research Institute of Geodesy, Aerial Surveying, and Cartography), 1949, issue 68, 5-11, and 1960, issue 131) of numerical solution of his integral equation for density of a single layer substituted for the attraction of anomalous masses in the interior of the Earth promptly lead to a higher accuracy than that of the Stokes' theory applied to the real Earth. The results of calculations carried out (Trudy TsNIIGAiK, 1950, issue 75, 11-77, and 1954, issue 103, 65-117) by Yeremeyev and Yurkina in accordance with the first of these methods are also much more accurate as compared with the Stokes' approximation, and are in fact near the correct values.
