Gravity anomaly of a dipping prism

  1. Mar 9, 2012 #1
    I have posted this in the earth science forums, but i didn't get a answer, so i am trying my luck here.

    I am trying to write a matlab script which calculates the gravity anomaly of a dipping prism, using the equations of Hjelt, published in Geoexploration in 1974, issue 1 volume 12.
    at the end of the page there are two notes, the second one says:
    "Note 2: The sign of each ϕ is positive, whenever there is an even number of 2s in the indices
    of u, v and w. (u1 - v1 - w1, u1 - v2 - w2, etc.)"

    I just can't get my head around what exactly this means and how to apply it.I have expanded the equations for each ϕ, using the limits for u, v and w, but they are very long, so will post them only if needed.
