- Fourier's method for solving the boundary value problems, Green's function.
- Potential theory and its application in determination of gravitational and gravity field of the Earth.
- Stokes, Molodenskij and fixed gravimetric boundary value problems.
- Solution of geodetic boundary value problems by using the spherical harmonic functions.
- Numerical methods - finite element and boundary element methods.
