This is a first integral of the equation of geodesics, involving one arbitrary constant h. 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.

Hence in the limit, as the three generators tend to coincidence, QR is perpendicular to d’.

Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive? Prove the formulae 19 of Art. Book ratings by Goodreads. Divergence theorem Looking for beautiful books?

A sphere of radius a rolls on the outside 6f a closed oval surface of volume V and area S, and the parallel surface, which is weatherburb outer envelope, geomefry volume Difverential and area S’. Table of contents Preface; 1. 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. The more elementary parts of the subject are discussed in Chapters I-XI. Line of striction Parallels. The equation of the rectifying plane at the point r is R-r.

We naturally enquire if the lines of curvature on one sheet of the evolute correspond with those on the other. Weathergurn equation satisfied by the unit normal. Consider a normal section of the surface at a given point, that is to say, the section by a plane containing the normal at that point.


In general the direction of Sr is different from that of r. Weingarten surfaces in general. Then since both t and fi are perpendicular to the normal, the osculating plane of the curve is tangential to the surface.

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

This is due to the fact that the osculating plane for an asymptotic line is the tangent plane to the surface, while the curvature of the geodesic tangent, being the normal curvature in the asymptotic direction, is zero.

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 weatherbudn to anyone with an interest in the history of education. Congruences of lines; Hence the two sheets of weatherbunr evolute of a surface, whose principal radii have a constant difference, are pseudo-spherical surfaces.

The converse problem to that just solved is the problem of finding the evolutes of a given curve 0. This makes j8 positive when the torsion is negative. Show that, on the surface whioh it generates, the given curve is the line of stnction. Two points A, B on the surface are joined by a fixed curve G 0 and a variable curve 0, enclosing between them a portion of the surface of constant area.

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 the asymptotic lines of the surface 8.


Various other weatherbjrn of o are used for star-maps. Find the geodesics of an ellipsoid of revolution. The curvature of the curve at any point is the arc-rate of rotation of the tangent. The normal at P touches both sheets of the evolute.

Differential Geometry of Three Dimensions: Volume 1

Two surfaces vy each other along a curve. The hne of striction of a skew surface is an orthogonal trajectory of the generators only if the latter are the bmormals of a curve, or if the surface is a right oonoid.

A relation between the parameters uv determines such a curve and therefore also a ruled surface. In other words the tangent planes to the surface along a curve G envelop a developable surface each of whose generators has the direction conjugate to that of G at their point of intersection. Hence only in the case of the Weingarten surfaces, on which the principal radii differ by a constantdo the lines of curvature on the two sheets of the centro-surface correspond.

The vector in brackets is tangential to the surface ; and consequent! The points at whioh the geodesio tangents to two different lines of ourvature cut orthogonally he on a sphere.

On differen- tiating the relation.

The author has recently shown that a family of curves on any sur- face possesses a hne of stnction. We shall always choose a right-handed system of rectangular coordinate axes, so that unit vectors m the directions OX, 0Y, OZ satisfy the above relations.
