Spherical Indicatrices of Involute of a Space Curve in Euclidean 3-Space
Keywords:Involute curve, Evolute curve, Helix, Slant helix, Spherical indicatrix.
In this work, we studied the properties of the spherical indicatrices of involute curve of a space curve and presented some characteristic properties in the cases that involute curve and evolute curve are slant helices and helices, spherical indicatrices are slant helices and helices and we introduced new representations of spherical indicatrices.
