## Theory of the rotation of the rigid Earth
We present the computation of the precession and nutation
expressions built with the analytical theories of the motion of the
Moon, the Sun and the planets of the Bureau des longitudes. We take
into account the influence of the Moon, the Sun and all the planets on
the potential of the Earth limited to for
