Abstract : The report is concerned with the successive approximation of the solutions of linear integral equations by electronic computers. An application is given by the approximation of Molodensky's basic integral equation. By a mathematical model Molodensky's solution of the basic integral equation is compared with the successive approximation of this integral equation. It is shown that the successive approximation is preferable. (Author)
