This category contains results about Curvature.
Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Curvature.

Let $C$ be a curve defined by a real function which is twice differentiable.

The curvature of a $C$ is the reciprocal of the radius of the osculating circle to $C$ and is often denoted $\kappa$ (Greek kappa).
