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...
