Abstract : This report, is based on the Ph.D. dissertation of Wayne Moore, together with a supplement describing details of our recent resolution of Hotine's Conjecture, is a more comprehensive version of a paper of ours which will appear in Bulletion Geodesique. It includes a detailed development of conformal geometry which is more complete than that given in Chapter 10 of Martin Hotine's Mathematical Geodesy (1969), and numerous technical aspects of Hotine's work on his conjecture. It is hoped that this report will be helpful to mathematical geodesists who wish to further explore the contributions of Hotine and Marussi to differential geodesy. Keywords: Tensor analysis, Conformal mapping.
