The author has recently shown that a family of curves on any sur- face possesses a hne of stnction. Determine the condition that the direotrix be a geodesic.

But if is inde- pendent of uand therefore it vanishes along any geodesio.

Differential Geometry of Three Dimensions: Volume 2

If one of the factors consists of a sum of vectors, the product may be expanded according to the distributive law.

The equation of the envelope is obtained by eliminating a and b from the equations 23 Each characteristic point is common to the envelope and one surface of the family ; and we can prove that the envelope touches each surface at the characteristic point or points.

And the; are the only orthogonal conjugate system. Calculate the fundamental magnitudes for an involute of a given dimeensions. But where the ditferential is synclastic, the curvature of any normal section has the e sign as the principal weatherbufn, that is to say, all normal ions are concave in the same direction.

Hence, in order that the asymptotic lines on S may correspond to those on each sheet of its evolute, the specific curva- ture of S must be constant. Prove that each sheet of the evolute of a pseudo-sphere is applicable to a oatenoid. Related invariants of a vector function. It will be noticed that the expression [n, r’, r “] for the geodesic curvature is the same as that found in Art.


From these results it is clear that the only curve whose owrvature and, torsion are loth constant is the circular helve. A plane curve has only a single evolute in its differentiql plane, the locus of the centre of curvature All other evolutes are helices traced on the right cylinder whose base is the plane evolute. This follows also from The envelope of a plane, suoh that the eum of the squares of i geometfy from n given wewtherburn is constant, is a comcoid with oentre at tl centroid of the given points 7.

It follows that the radius of geodesic curvature of the orthogonal trajectory is numerically equal to the difference between the principal radii of curvature of the surface 8. Surfaces for which the linear ele- ment is reducible to the form ds? This mutual moment is the scalar moment about either generator of a westherburn vector localised in the other.

Expanding this product and remembering that Art. We shall denote it by k. This texts has an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics. When the parametric curves are null lines, show that the Mamardi- odazzi relations may be expressed i, 0.

A sphere of constant radius a moves with its oentre on a given twist’ curve. On the right helicoid given by a?

All geodesics through an umbiho on an ellipsoid pass through the opposite umbiho. A ruled surface is one that can be generated by the motion of a straight line.


Any two Btereographic projections of a sphere are inverses of each other, the origin of inversion in either being the origin of projection m the other 8. For if A, B, G are three consecutive characteristics, A and B intersecting at P, and B and 0 at Q, these two pomts are consecutive points on the weahterburn B and also on the edge of regression. It is easy to show that each characteristic touches the edge of regression, that is to say, the two curves have the same tangent at their common pomt.

Gradient of a scalar function. Providing a detailed overview of the subject and forming a solid foundation for study of multidimensional differential geometry and the tensor calculus, this book will prove an invaluable reference work to dimensionw of mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in rifferential history of education.

Differential Geometry of Three Dimensions: Volume 1 : C. E. Weatherburn :

Geo- desics on a sphere are great circles, and therefore plane curves. The formula is independent of the choice of parameters. The reason for the name lies in the fact that the surface may he unrolled or developed into a plane without stretching or tearing.

And, since d is the unit normal to the sphere, we have 3. Book ratings by Goodreads. differwntial
