A note on the use of Gauss' formulas in non-linear goedetic adjustment.
MetadataShow full item record
The theory of adjustment is usually expounded by algebraic and analytical methods. It is well known, however, that the theory of linear adjustment can be represented simply and directly, using geometric reasoning, as properties of linear spaces. In Geodesy, geometric reasoning was already advocated by Tienstrat (1948), who used the Ricci calculus. Generalizing, the theory of non-linear adjustment can then be represented as properties of curved manifolds. In this note we show the principal role played by Gauss' formulas, known from differential geometry, in Gauss' method of least-squares. In particular we show the significance of AMS 1980 subject classification: 62P99, 62F10, 86A30.

Factors affecting student adjustment as they transition from primary to secondary school: a longitudinal investigationVaz, Sharmila Maria Agnella (2010)Transition from primary to secondary school occurs during the developmental period of early adolescence. Mixed findings exist across the literature on the effects of transition on student adjustment outcomes. This has led ...
To, Lap C. (1996)Nonlinearities exist in all process control systems. The use of linear control techniques is valid only in a narrow range of operation. Therefore, in this thesis, multivariable nonlinear control techniques are considered. ...
