An addition theorem for spherical waves is used to transform the displacement field due to an arbitrary shear dislocation in an unbounded homogeneous medium with origin at the focus to that in a coordinate system with origin at the center of the Earth. The final results are expressed in terms of the eigenvector solutions of the vector Naviér equation of dynamical elasticity. Some serious mistakes in recent papers on the subject have been pointed out.
