Surfaces generated via the evolution of spherical image of a space curve

M. A. Soliman, Nassar H.Abdel-All, R. A. Hussien, Taha Youssef Shaker


In this paper, we linked  the motion of spherical images with the motion of their curves. Surfaces generated by the evolution of spherical image of a space curve are constructed. Also geometric proprieties of these surfaces are obtained.
