No classes Spring break. No classes. Monday, March 14, 2011 Next we introduce the notion of an oriented curve. Definition 95 Given a curve # with parametric representations ! : I * RN and " : J * RN , we say that ! and " have the same orientation if the parameter change h : I * J is increasing and opposite orientation if the parameter change h : I * J is decreasing. If ! and " have the same orientation, we write * ! 4 ". * Exercise 96 Prove that 4 is an equivalence relation. Definition 97 An oriented curve # is an equivalence class...
