We may take d as a unit vector giving the direction of the line or ray, and t is then the distance from the director surface to the current point R on the ray. They are illustrated by the shapes of thm soap films m equilibrium, with the air pressure the same on both sides. The equations of the edge of regression are obtained by eliminating a from these three equations. Let the centre of inversion he taken as origin. Along any one line of curvature, C, the normals to the surface generate a developable surface whose edge of regression is the locus of the centres of curvature along G.
The pnnoipal normal to a ourve is normal to the locus of the centre of ourvature at points for which the value of k is stationary 2.

In all cases one of the three surfaces through m, hhree t z is an ellipsoid, one an hyperboloid of one sheet, and one an hyperboloid of two sheets. It should be noticed that the result is independent of the difgerential of positive direction along the normal For, if the opposite direc- tion is taken as positive, the direction of n is reversed, and at the same time 6 is replaced by — 6 or 2tt — 6, so that ab sin 0n remains unaltered.
Prove the formulae given above for the fundamental magnitudes of the second sheet of the centro-surface. On the curvatures of a surface; Index.
This quantity, however, does not play such an important part in the theory of curves as the curvature and torsion. Then the position of any point P on the surface is determined by the geodesic through 0 on which it lies, and its distance r from 0 along that geodesic. Hence if 6 vanishes identically the line of striction is the directrix This condition is that d’ be dimensioms to t.
On the skew surfaoe weatherbyrn by the line a? Consecutive principal normals do not in general intersect cf. The feometry may be proved analytically as follows. Conversely, if null lines on 8 correspond to null lines on 8, the representation is conformal Let the null lrnes be taken as parametric curves. Further recent advances; Note 1. Therefore the curvature and torsion are m a constant ratio. If the tangent to a geodesic is inclined at a constant angle to a fixed direction, the normal to the surface along the geodesio is everywhere perpen- dicular to the fixed direction.
It is sometimes convenient to refer the surface to its lines of curvature as parametric curves. Conversely, if a surface 8 has a system of circular lines of curva- ture, the normals along one of these generate a circular cone, whose vertex lies on a curve 0 to which the corresponding sheet of the evolute degenerates. The position vector r, of diensions point P relative to the origin 0, is the vector whose magnitude is the length OP, and whose direction is from 0 to P.
Surfaces of constant first curvature. What are the first and second curvatures for the spherical image? dimensikns
In particular instances either sheet of the evolute may degenerate into a curve. The first of these is equivalent to d!
If we give it that from P toward the concave side of the curve it follows from 2 that k must be regarded as positive, for t’ has also this direction.
Integrate waetherburn with respect to u, from the pole A to the side BG. Description Originally published inas the first of a two-part set, this informative and systematically organised textbook, primarily aimed at university students, htree a vectorial treatment of geometry, reasoning that by the use of such vector methods, geometry is able to be ‘both simplified and condensed’.
Table of contents Preface; Introduction.
Consider next the surface B which is derived from wextherburn given surface 8 by inversion. It is sometimes used for terres- trial maps. Further, we can prove theorems for spherical lines of curvaturesimilar to those proved above for plane lines of curvature.
Starting with this definition we may reverse the argument, and deduce the property that the principal normal to the geodesio coincides with the normal to the surface.
Examine, as in Ex. Book ratings by Goodreads. Calculate the fundamental magnitudes for the complementary surface determined by formula 25Art. We lose no generality by taking the line of striction as directrioo. We shall denote it by k. The title should be at least 4 characters long. Families of curves and functions of direction on a surface; 9. Fmd the fundamental magnitudes and the unit normal for the middle evolute.
Hence an asym- ptotic line on a surface is perpendicular to its spherical image at the corresponding point. Thus the curves threr the evolutewhich correspond to lines of curvature on the original surface, are conjugate, but m general are not lines of curvature because F is diffefential zero.
The geodesio distanoe between two opposite umbihos on an ellipsoid is one half the circumference of the principal section through the geomwtry.
