Title On the limiting accuracy of a free gyro
Author(s) V. Ph. Zhuravlev (Moscow)
Abstract The drift of an ideal spherical gyro in the absence of external torques is studied. Under these conditions, the gyro drift is caused by thermal vibrations of its crystal lattice.

A similar drift was studied in [1], where the Dulong and Petit law, which holds at room temperatures, was used to describe the dependence of the total vibration energy of elementary particles on the absolute temperature.

Near the absolute zero, this law should be replaced by the Debye law.

The results obtained below are valid without restrictions on the temperature.
