Thus through each point of the surface there passes a single geodesic in each direction. On the Umgent to a given curve a pomt Q is taken at a constant distance c from the point of contact Prove that the curvature of the locus of Q is given by K! Divergence and rotation of a vector. Conversely if dr is parallel to dr it is also parallel to dn. Small deformation of a congruence of curves.
Consider a curve 0 on the director surface, and the corresponding ruled surface 2.
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 scholars of mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
The normal plane at P is the plane through P perpendicular to the tangent. The lines of curvature on the two sheets will correspond if these two equations are identical. This parameter has then egometry different significance from that of the parameters u, v in Art. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative. The position vector r 0 of a current point P 0 on the directrix is a function of the arc-length 8 of this curve, measured from a fixed point on it.
The locus of the centre of geodesio curvature of a line of curvature is an evolute of the rifferential 2 5. The same may be proved analytically as follows.
As other examples of con- gruences may be mentioned the family of straight lines which intersect two given curves, and the family which intersect a given curve and are tangents to a given surface. It follows from 3 that, for given values of u and v, there are eight points on the surface, one in eaoh octant, symmetrically situated with respect to the coordinate planes.
Nonion form Scalar and vector of a dyadic.
Differential Geometry of Three Dimensions: Volume 1 : C. E. Weatherburn :
Similarly, if two surfaces cut at a constant angleand the curve of intersection is a line of curvature on oneit is a line of curvature on the other also. In this case the normal curvature, as determined by 9is mdependent of the ratio du.
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. The unit vectors t and n are perpendicular to each other, and their plane is the plane of curvature The straight line through P parallel to n is called the principal normal at P.

Envelope Characteristics 40 Similarly the normals at P, R inter- sect at a point B, and those at Q, T intersect at another E, both on the second sheet. And the; are the only orthogonal conjugate system. Its successive O derivatives with respect to s will be denoted by r’, r”, r”‘, and so on. The unit vector, n, normal to a surface at the current point, plays a promment part in this discussion The first curvature of the surface is the negative of the divergence of n; while the second curvature is expressible simply in terms of the divergence and the Laplacian of n with respect to the surface.
Thus the geodesio ellipses and hyperbolas bisect the angles between the corresponding systems of geodesic parallels. Thus, m the neighbourhood of an ordinary point, the ourve lies on one side of the plane determined by the tangent and bmormaL This plane is oalled the rectifying plane. The direction cosines of the tangent are therefore bo’, y’, z’. The parameter ahowever, determines a particular mem- ber of a family of surfaces, and has the same value at all points of that member.
Let 0 be the angle of rotation from OA to OB in this positive sense Then if a, b are the moduli of a, b the vector product of a and b is the vector ah sin 6n, where n is the unit vector in the positive direction along the normal.
Show that the spherical images of the asymptotic lines on a minimal surface, as well as the asymptotic lines themselves, are an isometrio Bystem Parallels of latitude are represented by the concentric circles -O” with centre at the ongm. Let r be a point on the surface 8, n the unit normal there, and r the point in which this normal cuts the curve G. The same results may be obtained analytically as follows. Families of surfaces; 7. To prove this theorem, take the null lines as parametric curves.
Ruled surfaces in general, however, do not possess these properties. Thus F vanishes identically, and the parametric curves are orthogonal This also follows directly from Thus h has the same sign as the principal radii of curvature, a and J3.
If a vector d is localised in a line through the point r, its moment about an axis through the origin 0, parallel to the umt vector a, is the resolved part in this direction of its vector moment about 0.
The parameters u, v thus constitute a system of curvilinear coordinates for points on the surface, the position of the pomt bemg determined by the values of u and v. As another example consider the osculating developable of a twisted curve.

Evolute or surface of centres. If now we consider all members of that family of lmes of curvature to which G belongs, the locus of their edges of regression is a surface, which is one sheet of the surface of centres. It is easy to show that the Vines of curvature on a surface are orthogonal in their spherical representor tion.
