Curves and Surfaces
The main subject of this chapter is surfaces in three-dimensional space. In preparation for this, we begin with a study of some special curves in the plane —the conic sections. In the last two sections, we will do some calculus with curves in space. Applications of calculus to surfaces are given in Chapters 15 and 16.
