The Application of Moving Axes Methods to the Geometry of Curves and Surfaces

    Abstract

    A PPARENTLY Routh was the first to turn to account the fact that the curvature and torsion of a space curve represent the components of rotation of the fundamental axes as they move along the curve. It was Darboux, however, who developed fully this application of kinematics.
