From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In differential geometry, the Frenet–Serret formulas describe the kinematic properties of a particle which

moves along a continuous, differentiable curve in three-dimensional Euclidean space R

3

, or the geometric

properties of the curve itself irrespective of any motion. More specifically, the formulas describe the

derivatives of the so-called tangent, normal, and binormal unit vectors in terms of each other. The

formulas are named after the two French mathematicians who independently discovered them: Jean Frédéric

Frenet, in his thesis of 1847, and Joseph Alfred Serret in 1851. Vector notation and linear algebra currently

used to write these formulas were not yet in use at the time of their discovery.

The tangent, normal, and binormal unit vectors, often called T, N, and B, or collectively the Frenet–Serret

frame or TNB frame, together form an orthonormal basis spanning R

3

, and are defined as follows:

T is the unit vector tangent to the curve, pointing in the direction of motion.

N is the normal unit vector, the derivative of T with respect to the arclength parameter of the curve,

divided by its length.

B is the binormal unit vector, the cross product of T and N.

The Frenet–Serret formulas are

where d/ds is the derivative with respect to arclength, κ is the curvature and τ is the torsion of the curve. The two scalars κ and τ effectively define the curvature

and torsion of a space curve. The associated collection, T, N, B, κ, and τ is called the Frenet–Serret apparatus. Intuitively, curvature measures the failure of a

curve to be a straight line, while torsion measures the failure of a curve to be planar.

Definitions

Let r(t) be a curve in Euclidean space, representing the position vector of the particle as a function of time. The Frenet–Serret formulas apply to curves which

are non-degenerate, which roughly means that they have nonzero curvature. More formally, in this situation the velocity vector r′(t) and the acceleration vector

r′′(t) are required not to be proportional.

Let s(t) represent the arc length which the particle has moved along the curve. The quantity s is used to give the curve traced out by the trajectory of the particle

a natural parametrization by arc length, since many different particle paths may trace out the same geometrical curve by traversing it at different rates. In detail,

s is given by

Moreover, since we have assumed that r′ ≠ 0, it follows that s(t) is a strictly monotonically increasing

function. Therefore, it is possible to solve for t as a function of s, and thus to write r(s) = r(t(s)). The

curve is thus parametrized in a preferred manner by its arc length.

With a non-degenerate curve r(s), parameterized by its arc length, it is now possible to define the

Frenet–Serret frame (or TNB frame):

The tangent unit vector T is defined as

The normal unit vector N is defined as

The binormal unit vector B is defined as the cross product of T and N:

From equation (2) it follows, since T always has unit magnitude, that N is always perpendicular to T. From

equation (3) it follows that B is always perpendicular to both T and N. Thus, the three unit vectors T, N, and B

are all perpendicular to each other.

The Frenet–Serret formulas are:

where is the curvature and is the torsion.

The Frenet–Serret formulas are also known as Frenet–Serret theorem, and can be stated more concisely using

matrix notation:

[1]

This matrix is skew-symmetric.

Formulas in n dimensions

The Frenet–Serret formulas were generalized to higher-dimensional Euclidean spaces by Camille Jordan in 1874.

Suppose that r(s) is a smooth curve in R

n

, parametrized by arc length, and that the first n derivatives of r are linearly independent.

[2]

The vectors in the Frenet–

Serret frame are an orthonormal basis constructed by applying the Gram-Schmidt process to the vectors (r′(s), r′′(s), ..., r

(s)).

In detail, the unit tangent vector is the first Frenet vector e

The Frenet–Serret formulas, stated in matrix language, are

Proof

Consider the matrix

The rows of this matrix are mutually perpendicular unit vectors: an orthonormal basis of R

. As a result, the transpose of Q is equal to the inverse of Q: Q is an

orthogonal matrix. It suffices to show that

Note the first row of this equation already holds, by definition of the normal N and curvature κ. So it suffices to show that (dQ/ds)Q

is a skew-symmetric

matrix. Since I = QQ

, taking a derivative and applying the product rule yields

which establishes the required skew-symmetry.

[3]

Applications and interpretation

Kinematics of the frame

The Frenet–Serret frame consisting of the tangent T, normal N, and binormal B collectively forms an orthonormal basis of 3-space. At each point of the curve,

this attaches a frame of reference or rectilinear coordinate system (see image).

The Frenet–Serret formulas admit a kinematic interpretation. Imagine that an observer moves along the curve in time, using the attached frame at each point as

her coordinate system. The Frenet–Serret formulas mean that this coordinate system is constantly rotating as an observer moves along the curve. Hence, this

coordinate system is always non-inertial. The angular momentum of the observer's coordinate system is proportional to the Darboux vector of the frame.

Concretely, suppose that the observer carries an (inertial) top (or gyroscope) with her along the curve. If the axis of the top points along the tangent to the curve,

then it will be observed to rotate about its axis with angular velocity -τ relative to the observer's non-inertial coordinate system. If, on the other hand, the axis of

the top points in the binormal direction, then it is observed to rotate with angular velocity -κ. This is easily visualized in the case when the curvature is a positive

constant and the torsion vanishes. The observer is then in uniform circular motion. If the top points in the direction of the binormal, then by conservation of

angular momentum it must rotate in the opposite direction of the circular motion. In the limiting case when the curvature vanishes, the observer's normal

precesses about the tangent vector, and similarly the top will rotate in the opposite direction of this precession.

The general case is illustrated below. There are further illustrations on Wikimedia.

the tangent, it is observed to rotate

Applications. The kinematics of the frame have many applications in the sciences.

In the life sciences, particularly in models of microbial motion, considerations of the

Frenet-Serret frame have been used to explain the mechanism by which a moving

organism in a viscous medium changes its direction.

[4]

In physics, the Frenet-Serret frame is useful when it is impossible or inconvenient to

assign a natural coordinate system for a trajectory. Such is often the case, for instance, in

relativity theory. Within this setting, Frenet-Serret frames have been used to model the

precession of a gyroscope in a gravitational well.

Frenet–Serret formulas in calculus

The Frenet–Serret formulas are frequently introduced in courses on multivariable calculus as a companion to the study of space curves such as the helix. A helix

can be characterized by the height 2πh and radius r of a single turn. The curvature and torsion of a helix (with constant radius) are given by the formulas

The sign of the torsion is determined by the right-handed or left-handed sense in which the helix twists around its central

axis. Explicitly, the parametrization of a single turn of a right-handed helix with height 2πh and radius r is

x = r cos t

y = r sin t

z = h t

(0 ≤ t ≤ 2 π)

and, for a left-handed helix,

x = r cos t

y = −r sin t

z = h t

(0 ≤ t ≤ 2 π).

Note that these are not the arc length parametrizations (in which case, each of x, y, and z would need to be divided by .)

In his expository writings on the geometry of curves, Rudy Rucker

[6]

employs the model of a slinky to explain the meaning of the torsion and curvature. The

slinky, he says, is characterized by the property that the quantity

remains constant if the slinky is vertically stretched out along its central axis. (Here 2πh is the height of a single twist of the slinky, and r the radius.) In

particular, curvature and torsion are complementary in the sense that the torsion can be increased at the expense of curvature by stretching out the slinky.

Taylor expansion

Repeatedly differentiating the curve and applying the Frenet–Serret formulas gives the following Taylor approximation to the curve near s = 0:

For a generic curve with nonvanishing torsion, the projection of the curve onto various coordinate planes in the T, N, B coordinate system at s = 0 have the

following interpretations:

The osculating plane is the plane containing T and N. The projection of the curve onto this plane has the form:

This is a parabola up to terms of order o(s

2

), whose curvature at 0 is equal to κ(0).

The normal plane is the plane containing N and B. The projection of the curve onto this plane has the form:

which is a cuspidal cubic to order o(s

3

).

The rectifying plane is the plane containing T and B. The projection of the curve onto this plane is:

which traces out the graph of a cubic polynomial to order o(s

3

).

Ribbons and tubes

The Frenet–Serret apparatus allows one to define certain optimal ribbons and tubes centered around a curve. These have diverse applications in materials

science and elasticity theory,

[8]

as well as to computer graphics.

[9]

A Frenet ribbon

[10]

along a curve C is the surface traced out by sweeping the line segment [−N,N] generated by the unit normal along the curve. Geometrically,

a ribbon is a piece of the envelope of the osculating planes of the curve. Symbolically, the ribbon R has the following parametrization:

In particular, the binormal B is a unit vector normal to the ribbon. Moreover, the ribbon is a ruled surface whose reguli are the line segments spanned by N. Thus

each of the frame vectors T, N, and B can be visualized entirely in terms of the Frenet ribbon.

[11]

The Gauss curvature of a Frenet ribbon vanishes, and so it is a developable surface. Geometrically, it is possible to "roll" a plane along the ribbon without

slipping or twisting so that the regulus always remains within the plane.

[12]

The ribbon then traces out a ribbon in the plane (possibly with multiple sheets). The

curve C also traces out a curve C

P

in the plane, whose curvature is given in terms of the curvature and torsion of C by

This fact gives a general procedure for constructing any Frenet ribbon.

[13]

Intuitively, one can cut out a curved ribbon from a flat piece of paper. Then by

bending the ribbon out into space without tearing it, one produces a Frenet ribbon.

[14]

In the simple case of the slinky, the ribbon is several turns of an annulus in

the plane, and bending it up into space corresponds to stretching out the slinky.

Congruence of curves

In classical Euclidean geometry, one is interested in studying the properties of figures in the plane which are invariant under congruence, so that if two figures

are congruent then they must have the same properties. The Frenet-Serret apparatus presents the curvature and torsion as numerical invariants of a space curve.

Roughly speaking, two curves C and C′ in space are congruent if one can be rigidly moved to the other. A rigid motion consists of a combination of a translation

and a rotation. A translation moves one point of C to a point of C′. The rotation then adjusts the orientation of the curve C to line up with that of C′. Such a

combination of translation and rotation is called a Euclidean motion. In terms of the parametrization r(t) defining the first curve C, a general Euclidean motion

of C is a composite of the following operations:

(Translation.) r(t) → r(t) + v, where v is a constant vector.

(Rotation.) r(t) + v → M(r(t) + v), where M is the matrix of a rotation.

The Frenet–Serret frame is particularly well-behaved with regard to Euclidean motions. First, since T, N, and B can all be given as successive derivatives of the

parametrization of the curve, each of them is insensitive to the addition of a constant vector to r(t). Intuitively, the TNB frame attached to r(t) is the same as the

TNB frame attached to the new curve r(t) + v.

This leaves only the rotations to consider. Intuitively, if we apply a rotation M to the curve, then the TNB frame also rotates. More precisely, the matrix Q whose

rows are the TNB vectors of the Frenet-Serret frame changes by the matrix of a rotation

A fortiori, the matrix (dQ/ds)Q

T

is unaffected by a rotation:

since MM

T

= I for the matrix of a rotation.

Hence the entries κ and τ of (dQ/ds)Q

T

are invariants of the curve under Euclidean motions: if a Euclidean motion is applied to a curve, then the resulting curve

has the same curvature and torsion.

Moreover, using the Frenet–Serret frame, one can also prove the converse: any two curves having the same curvature and torsion functions must be congruent

by a Euclidean motion. Roughly speaking, the Frenet–Serret formulas express the Darboux derivative of the TNB frame. If the Darboux derivatives of two

frames are equal, then a version of the fundamental theorem of calculus asserts that the curves are congruent. In particular, the curvature and torsion are a

complete set of invariants for a curve in three-dimensions.

Other expressions of the frame

The formulas given above for T, N, and B depend on the curve being given in terms of the arclength parameter. This is a natural assumption in Euclidean

geometry, because the arclength is a Euclidean invariant of the curve. In the terminology of physics, the arclength parametrization is a natural choice of gauge.

However, it may be awkward to work with in practice. A number of other equivalent expressions are available.

Suppose that the curve is given by r(t), where the parameter t need no longer be arclength. Then the unit tangent vector T may be written as

The normal vector N takes the form

The binormal B is then

An alternative way to arrive at the same expressions is to take the first three derivatives of the curve r′(t), r′′(t), r′′′(t), and to apply the Gram-Schmidt process.

The resulting ordered orthonormal basis is precisely the TNB frame. This procedure also generalizes to produce Frenet frames in higher dimensions.

In terms of the parameter t, the Frenet–Serret formulas pick up an additional factor of ||r′(t)|| because of the chain rule:

Special cases

If the curvature is always zero then the curve will be a straight line. Here the vectors N, B and the torsion are not well defined.

If the torsion is always zero then the curve will lie in a plane.

A curve may have nonzero curvature and zero torsion. For example, the circle of radius R given by r(t)=(R cos t, R sin t, 0) in the z=0 plane has zero torsion and

curvature equal to 1/R. The converse, however, is false. That is, a regular curve with nonzero torsion must have nonzero curvature. (This is just the

contrapositive of the fact that zero curvature implies zero torsion.)

A helix has constant curvature and constant torsion.

Plane curves

Given a curve contained on the x-y plane, its tangent vector T is also contained on that plane. Its binormal vector B can be naturally postulated to coincide with

the normal to the plane (along the z axis). Finally, the curve normal can be found completing the right-handed system, N = B × T.

[15]

This form is well-defined

even when the curvature is zero; for example, the normal to a straight line on a plane will be perpendicular to the tangent, all co-planar.
