Determination of statistical numbers Love and Shida by the method of finite elements

© M.V. Lubkov

Based upon variation finite element method Love and Shida numbers of the second order are determined for self-gravitating, elastic and statically balanced Earth, without taking into consideration oceanic and atmospheric loading. Liquid outer core and rigid inner core are taken into account in this case. PMC-model by Dzivonsky is used as a standard model of the Earth.
