Noun(1) (mathematics, as a straight line on a plane or an arc of a great circle on a sphere
Adjective(1) of or relating to or determined by geodesy
(1) A formula for the line integral of the geodesic curvature along a closed curve is known as the Gauss Bonnet theorem.(2) He solved a problem posed by Beltrami of representing one surface on a second surface in such a way that geodesic lines in the first correspond to geodesic lines in the second.(3) He introduced the geodesic curvature although he did not use the term which was due to Bonnet who discovered it independently in 1848.(4) By 1738 the geodesic measurements carried out to measure the length of a meridian degree had produced very strong evidence for the flattening at the poles.(5) A geodesic sun-tracking model was developed to determine sun position in the sky.(6) We take as given that the desired curve C is the unique Euclidean circle that is orthogonal to every geodesic through A.(7) In this latter topic he had to solve various problems of differential geometry and geodesics .(8) Fuller's ideas about creating more flexible, sustainable structures by combining technology with models of good design found in nature, like geodesics , were a gestalt to his inquisitive mind.(9) It possesses shortest lines, now called geodesics , which resemble ordinary straight lines.(10) The photons that reached its senses followed paths that varied slightly from the straight-line geodesics of flat spacetime.(11) Second, geodesics are circular arcs orthogonal to the unit circle.(12) Since no strong theoretical reason exists to confine the analysis to geodesics , Stephenson and Zelen's measure might be preferable.(13) His work in studying the trajectories of point masses on a surface led to certain non-linear differential equations whose solution also gave properties of geodesics .(14) This reminded me of an interesting property of geodesics in general relativity.(15) Using this approximation in Maxwell's equations we see that light travels along null geodesics .(16) The theory of the geodesics in the large on such surfaces was developed later in the famous memoirs by P Koebe.
