Characterizations of timelike slant helices in Minkowski 3-space
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we investigate the tangent indicatrix, the principal normal indicatrix and the binormal indicatrix of a timelike curve in Minkowski 3-space E-1(3) and we construct their Frenet equations and curvature functions. Moreover, we obtain some differential equations which characterize a timelike curve to be a slant helix by using the Frenet apparatus of a spherical indicatrix of the curve. Also, related examples and their illustrations are given.
