Abstract: We introduce the notion of quasi-well-centered spherical quadrangle, or QWCSQ for short, describing a geometrical method to construct any QWCSQ. It is shown that any spherical quadrangle is congruent to a QWCSQ. We classify such quadrangles taking in account the relative position of the spherical moons containing their sides. This allows us to conclude that the class of all QWCSQ is a differentiable manifold of dimension five.
Keywords: spherical geometry, applications of spherical trigonometry
