Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 171)


This chapter introduces basic concepts on the geometry of plane curves, including arc length, curvature and change of parameter. It also contains a presentation of implicit and non-local representations, and discusses special cases of invariant parametrizations, relative to specific groups of transformations.
