### When is the hull of a space curve composed of developable patches?

Let $C$ be a smooth curve in $\mathbb{R}^3$ that lies entirely on its convex hull,
$\cal{H}(C)$.
Under what conditions on $C$ is $\cal{H}(C)$ the union of developable surface patches?
I believe ...

### On the curvature tensor with certain conditions

Let $(M^{n+m},g)$ be a Riemannian manifold and let $\lbrace X_1,...,X_n,Y_1,...,Y_m\rbrace $ be a locally orthonormal frame for $M$($3\leq n,m$).
If we suppose the curvature tensor $R$ of $g$ ...

### Surface analog of clothoid: curvatures covering $\mathbb{R}$

The clothoid $C$, a.k.a. the Euler spiral,
is one among many curves with
the property that its curvatures cover $\mathbb{R}$
in the sense that, for every $x \in \mathbb{R}$,
there is a point $p \in C$ ...
