Curve (a.): To bend; to crook; as, to curve a line; to curve a pipe; to cause to swerve from a straight course; as, to curve a ball in pitching it.

Trochoid (n.): The curve described by any point in a wheel rolling on a line; a cycloid; a roulette; in general, the curve described by any point fixedly connected with a moving curve while the moving curve rolls without slipping on a second fixed curve, the curves all being in one plane. Cycloids, epicycloids, hypocycloids, cardioids, etc., are all trochoids.

Parameter (n.): A term applied to some characteristic magnitude whose value, invariable as long as one and the same function, curve, surface, etc., is considered, serves to distinguish that function, curve, surface, etc., from others of the same kind or family.

Roulette (n.): the curve traced by any point in the plane of a given curve when the latter rolls, without sliding, over another fixed curve. See Cycloid, and Epycycloid.

Acnode (n.): An isolated point not upon a curve, but whose coordinates satisfy the equation of the curve so that it is considered as belonging to the curve.

Glissette (n.): The locus described by any point attached to a curve that slips continuously on another fixed curve, the movable curve having no rotation at any instant.

Curve (a.): Bent without angles; crooked; curved; as, a curve line; a curve surface.

Osculatrix (n.): A curve whose contact with a given curve, at a given point, is of a higher order (or involves the equality of a greater number of successive differential coefficients of the ordinates of the curves taken at that point) than that of any other curve of the same kind.

Long (superl.): Drawn out or extended in time; continued through a considerable tine, or to a great length; as, a long series of events; a long debate; a long drama; a long history; a long book.

Sinusoid (n.): The curve whose ordinates are proportional to the sines of the abscissas, the equation of the curve being y = a sin x. It is also called the curve of sines.

Yataghan (n.): A long knife, or short saber, common among Mohammedan nations, usually having a double curve, sometimes nearly straight.

Evolute (n.): A curve from which another curve, called the involute or evolvent, is described by the end of a thread gradually wound upon the former, or unwound from it. See Involute. It is the locus of the centers of all the circles which are osculatory to the given curve or evolvent.

Long (adv.): At a point of duration far distant, either prior or posterior; as, not long before; not long after; long before the foundation of Rome; long after the Conquest.

Glaive (n.): A weapon formerly used, consisting of a large blade fixed on the end of a pole, whose edge was on the outside curve; also, a light lance with a long sharp-pointed head.

Quicken (a.): To shorten the radius of (a curve); to make (a curve) sharper; as, to quicken the sheer, that is, to make its curve more pronounced.

Tangent (a.): meeting a curve or surface at a point and having at that point the same direction as the curve or surface; -- said of a straight line, curve, or surface; as, a line tangent to a curve; a curve tangent to a surface; tangent surfaces.

Cusp (n.): A multiple point of a curve at which two or more branches of the curve have a common tangent.

Curve (a.): A bending without angles; that which is bent; a flexure; as, a curve in a railway or canal.

Involute (n.): A curve traced by the end of a string wound upon another curve, or unwound from it; -- called also evolvent. See Evolute.

Rectifiable (a.): Admitting, as a curve, of the construction of a straight l//e equal in length to any definite portion of the curve.

Osculation (n.): The contact of one curve with another, when the number of consecutive points of the latter through which the former passes suffices for the complete determination of the former curve.

Long-lived (a.): Having a long life; having constitutional peculiarities which make long life probable; lasting long; as, a long-lived tree; they are a longlived family; long-lived prejudices.

Hemautography (n.): The obtaining of a curve similar to a pulse curve or sphygmogram by allowing the blood from a divided artery to strike against a piece of paper.

Folium (n.): A curve of the third order, consisting of two infinite branches, which have a common asymptote. The curve has a double point, and a leaf-shaped loop; whence the name. Its equation is x3 + y3 = axy.

Unicursal (a.): That can be passed over in a single course; -- said of a curve when the coordinates of the point on the curve can be expressed as rational algebraic functions of a single parameter /.

Curvature (n.): The amount of degree of bending of a mathematical curve, or the tendency at any point to depart from a tangent drawn to the curve at that point.

Envelop (n.): A curve or surface which is tangent to each member of a system of curves or surfaces, the form and position of the members of the system being allowed to vary according to some continuous law. Thus, any curve is the envelope of its tangents.

Node (n.): The point at which a curve crosses itself, being a double point of the curve. See Crunode, and Acnode.

Brachystochrone (n.): A curve, in which a body, starting from a given point, and descending solely by the force of gravity, will reach another given point in a shorter time than it could by any other path.
