Prof. Zbyněk Šír.: Curves and Surfaces with Rational Geometric Properties
2015/05/26, ZIB (Hörsaal): This talk will be devoted to the study of rational geometric objects possessing special rational properties. In particular, we focus on rational curves and surfaces with rational offsets, rational curvature functions, rational convolutions with other objects, rational normal
fields and frames. In the univariate case, we also study curves with polynomial or rational speed, which are traditionally called Pythagorean hodograph curves. In the bivariate case, we investigate surfaces with rational area element which are called, by analogy, Pythagorean hodograph surfaces.
