Abstract

In this paper we give the representation formulas for spacelike curves in two-dimensional lightlike cone \({{\mathbb Q}^2}\) and three-dimensional lightlike cone \({{\mathbb Q}^3}\). Using these formulas we discuss the properties and structures of cone curves in \({{\mathbb Q}^2}\) and \({{\mathbb Q}^3}\). Some examples are also given.
