This paper describes the algorithms used in version 1.2.0 of the open-source software Tesseroids. The software is a suite of C coded command-line programs that calculate the gravitational field of a tesseroid (spherical prism) model. There is also a separate Python implementation of the same algorithm in the fatiando.gravmag.tesseroid module of the open-source library Fatiando a Terra (introduced in version 0.3).
