Parallel Curves: Getting There and Getting Back


IJMEST Volume 37, Number 1, ISSN 0020-739X


This note takes up the issue of parallel curves while illustrating the utility of “Mathematica” in computations. This work complements results presented earlier. The presented treatment, considering the more general case of parametric curves, provides an analysis of the appearance of cusp singularities, and emphasizes the utility of symbolic algebra systems. (Contains 5 figures.)
