The solution algorithm is described by the following steps: 1. If (x 2 p + yp2 ) = 0, then the longitude λ cannot be defined. Moreover, ìïf = p / 2, í îïf = -p / 2, if zp > 0 if zp < 0 if zp > 0 ìïh = zp - b, í îïh = - zp - b, if zp < 0 and the algorithm stops here. 2. 3) 3. Setting up at will the sensitivity levels εϕ and εh in order to define the convergence condition of the iterative process and initializing the algorithm with the following starting values: fs = p a , ds = , hs = 0. 2 1 - e2 4.
