Since the described coordinate system is not inertial with
respect to fixed stars, its acceleration (with respect to an inertial
system) can be observed as a change of geometry of the potential.

THE METHOD OF LEAST SQUARES

unique values for physical parameters from redundant measurements of
those parameters, or
