Rates of rotation e.

This second sheet is called the comple- mentary surface to 8 with respect to that family of geodesics. By substituting m these the values of Ti and ra given in 17 we could deduce the formulae of Ex. Hence in general the spherical image is not a conformal representa- tion. They are all deducible from 7 and 8 with the aid of the Gauss characteristic equation.

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 differentia. Total second curvature of a geodesio triangle. It follows from the above that the direction weathergurn a line of curvature at any point is a principal direction at that point.

Then since, by Art. The properties of such surfaces will be examined in a later chapter. Prove that these formulae may be deduced from the Gauss character- istic equation and the Mainardi-Codazzi relations. It is denoted by — b.

Bell Ss Sonsof whioh Arts 1 — 8, 12, 15 — 17, 28—20, 42 — 46, 49—51, 55 — 57 would constitute a helpful oompanion oourse of reading References are to the old edition t In MS.

Families of curves and functions of direction on a surface; 9. 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.


This condition may be expressed differently.

If the surface is an ellipsoid the values of u and v are separated by — b. From 16 or 17 we may deduce an expansion for the geodesic curvature in terms of uu” etc. This expression for the torsion ee a geodesic is identical with that found in Art.

This convention of the right-handed screw plays an important part in the following pages Let OAOB be two intersecting straight lines whose directions Na axb Fig. Consider the surface generated by the binomials of a twisted ourve. Vector notation and formulae; 1. It is sometimes convenient to refer the surface to its lines of curvature as parametric curves. And as a further exercise the reader may easily verify the follow- ing relations which will be used later: The more elementary parts of the subject are discussed in Chapters I-XI.

Find the osoulating developable of the circular helix. Show that the equation dimeneions a paraboloid, wweatherburn The surface in the fhbourhood weatherbunr the point wextherburn lies entirely on one side of the jent plane at the point.

They will be denoted by L, M, N. The infinitude of such surfaces, corresponding to the infinitude of relations that may connect u and v, are called the surfaces of the congruence.

Examine the congruence of tangents to a given sphere from points on a given diameter.

The parametric curves clearly constitute an isometric system Art. Hence the vector product a x b is a definite vector. 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. Two surfaces touch each other along a curve.


Since the book was first published a few errors have been corrected, and one or two paragraphs rewritten. This is possible only on an elliptic paraboloid idfferential, and the common parameter value is then equal to 6.

We may measure the aro-length of the locus of S in that direction which makes its unit tangent tj have the same direction as b.

If a geodesic on a developable surface is a plane curve, it is one of the generators, or else the surface is diffeential cylinder. We may observe in passing that the normal to a surface of the congruence through the ray d is perpendicular both to this ray and to the common perpendicular x d to it and a consecutive ray.

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. NORMAL 39 13, 14] lines to the surface at the point as, y, z are perpendicular to the vector F aF yF tand therefore lie in the plane through as, y, z perpendicular to this vector. If, on the geodesics which cut a given curve 0 orthogonally, points be taken at equal geodesio distances from 0, the locus of the points is am, orthogonal trajectory of the geodesios.
