Area in Neutral, Euclidean and
Up to this time we have not yet dened area. It is a measurement, like distance and angle
measure, so it is a function that assigns a real number to a geometric object. We want to
5.2 Geodesic Equations and Clairaut Relation
Now that we know what geodesics are, how can we do the calculations? Lets consider an
orthogonal patch x(u, u), (i.e., F : xu 'xv : 0). Let 0 be a geodesic in the patch x. Then,
we know that we can write C(15)
