Abstract : In solving problems on modern machines without floating decimal it is necessary to have fairly good bounds on the various variables entering into the computation. The theodolite problem geometrically is the problem of triangulation from n stations. For the method in use, very close bounds are given on all the variables of the problem. For the most critical of these, bounds are given in terms of a quantity which serves as a criterion of parallelism of n lines. (Author)
