Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THIS PAPER has a fourfold purpose: In Section 1, to display a method for computing subject positions, offered as being simple and straightforward, that ought when exploited fully to permit attainment of high accuracy in the results. The presentation consists essentially of posing a minimal-data problem, as problem No. 1, and then setting forth the solution thereto. Pertinent notes and comments are added at the end of this and the other sections.
