Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

SpaceCurve(C, r)

Parameters

C

-

Vector(algebraic); the free or position Vector representing a curve

r

-

name=range; the range of the parameter of the curve

Description

• 

The SpaceCurve(C, t=a..b) calling sequence plots a space curve in R2 or R3. The plot is displayed in Cartesian coordinates.

• 

Alternatively, a curve can be defined using a position Vector and it can be visualized with PlotPositionVector.
