A Note on Parametrization

The key to parametrizartion is to realize that the goal of this method is to describe the location of all points on a geometric object, a curve, a surface, or a region. This description must be one-to-one and onto: every point must be described once and only once.

1 Parametrization of Curves in R2

Let us begin with parametrizing the curve C whose equation is given by

x2 + y2 = 4

1

i.e., a circle of radius 2 centered at the origin. We start by associating a position vector r to each point x; y on C through the relation

r = hx; yi:

2

The coordinates x and y in 2are not arbitrary they are related through equation 1. This means that we are free to assign a value to only one of the coordinates of a typical point on C ; the other coordinate must be determined from the equation of the circle. For this reason we say C has one degree of freedom. Choosing x as the parameter for C , we see from 1 that

p y = 4 , x2 ;

where the positive square root describes those points on C that lie above the x-axis and the negative square root the points below the x-axis. The complete parametrization of C is p p r1 x = hx; 4 , x2 i and r2 x = hx; , 4 , x2i; 3 where ,2 x 2 for r1 and ,2 x 2 for r2 . Note that the points ,2; 0 and 2; 0 are arbitrarily assigned to r1 . We can now use the parametrization of C to determine tangent vectors to C , plot C on a graphics software, or to perform a line integral around C. Although the paramerization in 3 is adequate for the purpose of describing C , it is not the most convenient description of this curve. A more e cient way to view C is to use polar coordinates to describe its points: x = 2 cos

y = 2 sin ..
