Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The papers were written in the period 1962-1998 and present a wide range of significant topics in the mathematical foundation of geodesy. ... All the articles are mathematically well founded and scientifically relevant. The book will be of interest to mathematicians and geodesists as well as to students and historians." (Alexander Denisjuk, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 i)

"Torben Krarup is one of the most outstanding theoretical geodesists ... of the last 50 years. ... written many small informal papers which circulated among friends and exerted considerable influence, not only in the geodetic community, but also, e.g. on the well-known mathematician L. Hörmander ... . The present book comprises most of such ... informal papers. ... It is a must to all people, working in physical geodesy, to read this book ... ." (Helmut Moritz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1162, 2009)
