 Darboux vector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In differential geometry, especially the theory of space curves, the Darboux vector is the areal velocity vector of the Frenet frame of a space curve.
Each Frenet vector moves about an "origin" which is the center of the rigid object (pick some point within the object and call it its center).
The Darboux vector provides a concise way of interpreting curvature κ and torsion τ geometrically: curvature is the measure of the rotation of the Frenet frame about the binormal unit vector, whereas torsion is the measure of the rotation of the Frenet frame about the tangent unit vector.

For a reference, a second copy of the Frenet frame is shown with its 'center' at the origin of 3-space.
For this longer thinner frame we take the initial conditions to be the same as those for torus knot Frenet frame, at a point on the torus knot where curvature is small and torsion is large (right after the first 'hilltop' is crossed by the torus knot Frenet frame).
This graphic shows the first frame of an animated view of the Theorema Egregium of Gauss, that the (Gauss) curvature K of a surface is invariant under isometry.

 Computation of the Frenet frame of the plumbline
, the torsion of the plumbline, are defined at the origin of the local Frenet frame by the expressions in Eqs.
The coordinates computed refer to the Frenet frame the origin of which is actually a running point along the plumbline.
Therefore X,Y and Z have to be transformed to the x, y, and z coordinate system of the density model to obtain the coordinates of the extrapolated point of the plumbline being investigated.

Thus, B is a unit vector normal to the plane spanned by T and N at time t.
The 3 vectors T, N, and B taken together are called either the TNB frame or the Frenet Frame of the curve.
Since both v and a are in the plane spanned by T and N, the binormal vector B is also the unit vector in the direction of v×a.

(left) The Frenet Frame is a (tangent, normal) coordinate frame that is adapted to the local structure of each point along a curve; and (right) the osculating circle is that circle with the largest contact with the curve among all circles tangent at that point.
Of course, for the full system the complete Frenet 2-frames are used to infer the Frenet 3-frame attached to the space curve.

Geometric interpretation of the Frenet-Serret frame description of circular orbits in stationary axisymmetric spacetimes
A geometrical interpretation is given for the Frenet-Serret structure along constant speed circular orbits in orthogonally transitive stationary axisymmetric spacetimes.
This gives a simple visualization of the acceleration of these orbits and of the Fermi-Walker angular velocity of the usual symmetry-adapted frame vectors along them and provides an elegant description of the various observers characterized by critical values of the variables parametrizing the acceleration.
