The normal curvature is zero m the directions of the asymptotes. Thus the line of striction is the locus of the points at which the geodesic curvature of the ortho- gonal trajectories of the generators vanishes.

The first term vanishes because n is perpendicular to b, and the equation then shows that b’ is perpendicular to t But it is also perpendicular to b, and must therefore be parallel to n We may then write db ds. They are identical when K is zero In the last case the surface bj a developable, and the single asymptotic line through a point is f generator. On the other hand if the principal curvatures have opposite signs on any part of the dimehsions, this part is said to be anticlastic.

We have seen that the asymptotic lines on a minimal surface form cm orthogonal system. Let the parameters be so chosen that the principal surfaces correspond to the parametric curves.

If we consider the possibility of the asymptotic lines of the surface S corresponding with those of the first sheet of the evolute, we sefek to identify 10 with the equation of weathefburn asymptotic lines of the surface 8. 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. This condition oc be expressed differently. Hence, when p and n are given and their derivatives cam, he calcu- lated, the surface is completely determined.


The points at which two geodesic tangents to a given line of curvature on a quadrio cut orthogonally lie on the surface of a sphere. The congruence therefore gelmetry a double infinitude of straight lmes Such a system is constituted by the normals to a given surface. More generally, if the square of the linear element has the form di? It is sometimes convenient to refer the surface to its lines of curvature as parametric curves.

The shortest distance between oonsecutive radii of spherical curvature divides the radius m the ratio Ex. Sifferential QQ ‘ is parallel to d’ x d and is therefore perpendicular to d’. But where the ace is synclastic, the curvature of any normal section has the e sign as the principal curvatures, that is to say, all normal ions are concave in the same direction. It is called the parameter of distribution for that generator, and weatherbur the same sign as D.

With the notation of Art. Hence in general the spherical image is not a conformal representa- tion. Now the normal n to the surface S is perpendicular to both r x and r a. The osoulating planes of a line of curvature and of its spherical image at corresponding points are parallel. All diffetential properties will be differetnial analytically in the following Art. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.

Orthogonal trajectories of the surfaces. Involutes of a surface.

VIII If both systems of lines of curvature of S are circular, each sheet of the evolute degenerates to a curve. And since k is constant it then follows that k 0 is constant, so that the cylmder on which the helix is drawn is a circular cylinder.

If the principal normals of a curve intersect a fixed line, the curve is a geodesio on a surface of revolution, and the fixed line is the axis of the surface. It is also called the Gauss curvature, and is denoted by K. We have already seen Art.

Thus, if two directions are conjugate at a point on a given surface, each is perpendicular to the spherical image of the other at the corresponding point.

But as Mainardi gave similar results twelve years earlier than Codazzi, they are more justly termed the Main ardi- Codazzi relations. The properties of such surfaces will be examined in a later chapter.

This equation represents a plane through the centre of curvature perpendicular to the principal normal It intersects the normal plane in a straight line through the centre of curvature parallel to the binomial Fig 4. Let parameters u, v be chosen to map out the surfaces 8E so that corresponding points on the two surfaces differetial the same parameter values.

An important property of all helices is that the curvature and torsion are in a constant i atio. The normals A Fig.
