1  List of Methods used for Diameter Determinations

    The methods  of determination  were classified  as direct  or indirect
    methods.  A  more  detailed  subdivision  is  based  on  the  physical
    principles  of determination.  References regarding the first measures
    and/or basic papers are given.
