Description

The idea of involute is due to C. Huygens (1658), and he is also known for his work in optics. He found involutes while trying to build a more accurate clock. Now, the involute and evolute are well-known concepts to study space curves in 3D space. In this project, we are investigating rectifying curves using their partner curves, involute and evolute.
