Deduce from 12 that the torsions of the two asymptotio lines dimfnsions a point are equal in magnitude and opposite in sign. Henoe show that the two Bheets of the centro-surface are identical. The problem of Minding e. The remainder of the book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. Prove that these formulae may be deduced from the Gauss character- istic equation and the Mainardi-Codazzi relations.

The osoulating planes of a line of curvature and of its spherical image at corresponding points are geomettry.

Find the equations of the heliooid generated by a circle of radius a, whose plane passes through the ; and determine the lines of ourvature on the surface.

Differential invariants for the deformed surface. In other geometr 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.

We shall now prove that the envelope touches ENVELOPES 15] 41 each member of the family of sw faces at all points of its character- istic The characteristic corresponding to the parameter dimeensions a lies both on the surface with the dimensios parameter value and on the envelope Thus all points of the characteristic are common to the surface and the envelope.

This theorem is due to Mannheim. It is skew surfaces particularly that we shall now consider. Hence if the surface is deformed without stretching or tearing, so that the length ds of each arc element is unaltered, the geodesics remain geodesics on the deformed surface In particular, when a developable surface is developed into a plane, the geodesics on the surface become straight lines on the plane.

They are real and different when M 1 — LN is positive, that is to say when the specific curvature is negative They are imaginary when K is positive. The suffix 1 will be used to indicate partial differentiation with respect to u, and the suffix 2 partial differentiation with respect to v. Thus the curvature of the indicatrix is the ratio of the screw curvature to the torsion of the given curve.


These may be established as follows. The Cartesian coordinates as, y, z of the point are then known functions rhree u, v, and the elimination of the two parameters leads to a single rela- tion between oo, y, z which is usually called the equation of the surface.

Verify the Gauss equation 5 for the surfaces in Examples 2, 3, 6i 7 of Art. The formulae 17 of Art. In this way the surface may be mapped out into small geommetry by means of the parametric curves, the sides of any one square corresponding to equal increments m u and v.

The principal normal mterseots the axis of the cylinder or gonally ; and the tangent and binormal are inclined at constant angles to fixed direction of the generators. These are called the principal directions at P. To see this we consider a small geodesic circle distai from the pole. Hence this tangent is perpendicular to d’.

We now define a surface as the locus of a point whose coordinates are functions of two independent parameters uv. Let G be any curve drawn on the surface, r’ its unit tangent, h its principal normal, r its torsion, and W the torsion of the geodesic which touches it at the point considered We define the normal angle vr of the curve as the angle from n to the normal n to the surface, in the positive sense b Fig.

It has already been remarked that the quantities L, M, N are connected with the curvature properties of the surface. 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 negative of the vector b is a vector with the same modulus but the opposite direction. A Barnard of Melbourne University, whose influence was partly responsible for my initial interest in the subject. And, conversely, when the linear element is of this form, the para- metric curves are systems of geodesic parallels. A curve is the locus of a point whose position vector r relative to a fixed origin may he expressed as a function of a single variable parameter. Hence the fixed direction of the generators is parallel to the plane of t and b ; and since it makes a constant angle with t, it also makes a constant angle with b.


This second sheet is called the comple- mentary surface to 8 with respect to that family of geodesics.

differentil Minimal Surfaces 0 1. If the wextherburn of one family of an isometric system have constant geodesic ourvature, so also have the ourves of the other family. 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. Show that the meridians and parallels on a sphere form an isomotrio ,em, and determine the isometric p ministers.

A plane curve has only a single evolute in its own plane, the locus of the centre of curvature All other evolutes are helices traced on the right cylinder whose base is the plane evolute.

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.

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. Thus the section of the surface by the plane parallel to the tan- gent plane at P, and indefinitely close to it, is aeatherburn and similarly situated to the ellipse.

Show difderential tho curvature of an asymptotio line, as given in 26 of. The same results may be obtained analytically as follows. All these properties will be proved analytically in the following Art. The curvature of the curve at any point is the arc-rate of rotation of the tangent.

Hence along any one geodesic the normal curvature varies as the cube of the central perpendicular on the tangent plane.
