The Surveys in Differential Geometry are vitamins to the magazine of Differential Geometry, that are released by means of overseas Press. They comprise major invited papers combining unique learn and overviews of the most up-tp-date examine in particular components of curiosity to the turning out to be magazine of Differential Geometry neighborhood.

R s, 6 , are substituted in the expressions (73) where, for the sake of brevity, = 1,2,8 = l, 2, we have put CURVES IN SPACE 28 The and coefficients of U, F, Win (73) are of the same form as the expressions (71) for a, I, X ; ft m, p, ; 7, n, v. Moreover, the are equivalent to (72). Hence these equations of condition (59) coefficients are the direction-cosines of three fixed directions in another. * These results may be stated thus : be If the general solution of equation (65) the curve whose radii of respectively is given first and second curvature are p and T "by must be remarked that the new axes of coordinates are not necessarily real, so that when it is important to know whether the It will be advisable to consider the general formulas example of this will be given later.

S f denote coordinates referring to the axes at 77, M those with reference to the axes at Since the rate of change of a (see fig. 4). f , and zero is and :=! at J/, the cosine of the angle between the f- and f'-axes is 1 to within terms of higher than the first order in As. Likewise the cosine of the angle between the - and Tj'-axes cosines of the angles between all the axes, and the results is As/p. We calculate the may be tabulated as follows: f (81) FIG, 4 Let at P be M are f , a point whose coordinates with respect to the trihedral 77, f.
