How can the high angular resolution of VLBI be explained?

angular resolution = lambda / D, Here D is the diameter of the telescope. Because the same signal is measured in more than one telescope it’s possible to take the distance between these telescopes as D an not only the real diameter.

Which are the most important error sources for the VLBI of today?

structure of the radio sources (quasars don’t appear as point sources), antenna structure (deformation, thermal expansion), troposphere (water vapor)

Which relativitic effects have to be considered in VLBI analyses (withhout formulas)?

a)“Clock error” (see formula 2.21): The stronger the gravity field is, the more slowly the clocks are running and moving clocks are running more slowly than clocks at rest // b) Signal goes across a Gravity Field (eg. Earth, Sun) (see formula 2.26): a signal is slowed down when propagating through a gravitational field (only relevant when the signal passes very closely to a gravity body)
