Since one semiaxis can be recovered from central section, we condition on the knowledge of its length and we are interested in the other semiaxis length, that is, A for prolate spheroids, C for oblate spheroids and D for profiles.
Similar result holds for the population of oblate spheroids.
n] be independent and identically distributed oblate spheroids with isotropic orientation.
When considering oblate spheroids, the situation is reversed compared to the prolate case.
The gravitational scalar potential exterior to a homogeneous static oblate spheroid  is given as
In approximate oblate spheroidal gravitational fields, the arbitrary function f([eta], [xi]) can be conveniently equated to the gravitational scalar potential exterior to an oblate spheroid .
