# A Book of Curves by E. H. Lockwood

By E. H. Lockwood

This e-book opens up a massive box of arithmetic at an effortless point, one during which the section of aesthetic excitement, either within the shapes of the curves and of their mathematical relationships, is dominant. This ebook describes equipment of drawing airplane curves, starting with conic sections (parabola, ellipse and hyperbola), and happening to cycloidal curves, spirals, glissettes, pedal curves, strophoids etc. mostly, 'envelope equipment' are used. There are twenty-five full-page plates and over 90 smaller diagrams within the textual content. The booklet can be utilized in colleges, yet can be a reference for draughtsmen and mechanical engineers. As a textual content on complex aircraft geometry it may attract natural mathematicians with an curiosity in geometry, and to scholars for whom Euclidean geometry isn't really a critical examine.
