curve

Geodetic Ge`o*det"ic, Geodetical Ge`o*det"ic*al, a. Of or pertaining to geodesy; obtained or determined by the operations of geodesy; engaged in geodesy; geodesic; as, geodetic surveying; geodetic observers. Geodetic line or curve, the shortest line that can be drawn between two points on the elipsoidal surface of the earth; a curve drawn on any given surface so that the osculating plane of the curve at every point shall contain the normal to the surface; the minimum line that can be drawn on any surface between any two points.

Curve

Curve Curve, n. [See Curve, a., Cirb.] 1. A bending without angles; that which is bent; a flexure; as, a curve in a railway or canal. 2. (Geom.) A line described according to some low, and having no finite portion of it a straight line. Axis of a curve. See under Axis. Curve of quickest descent. See Brachystochrone. Curve tracing (Math.), the process of determining the shape, location, singular points, and other peculiarities of a curve from its equation. Plane curve (Geom.), a curve such that when a plane passes through three points of the curve, it passes through all the other points of the curve. Any other curve is called a curve of double curvature, or a twisted curve.
