Abstract

In this paper, tangent, principal normal and binormal wise associated curves are defined such that each of these vectors of any given curve lies on the osculating, normal and rectifying plane of its mate, respectively. For each associated curves a new moving frame and the corresponding curvatures are found, and in addition to this the possible solutions for distance functions between the curve and its associated mate are discussed. In particular, it is seen that the involute curves belong to the family of tangent associated curves, the Bertrand and the Mannheim curves belong to the principal normal associated curves. Finally, as an application, we present some examples and map a given curve together with its mate and their frames.
