An Alternative Moving Frame for Tubular Surface around the Spacelike Curve with a Spacelike Binormal in Minkowski 3-Space

Murat Kemal Karacan, Bahaddin Bukcu

We describe a robust method for constructing a tubular surface surrounding a spacelike curve with a spacelike binormal in Minkowski 3-Space. Our method is designed to eliminate undesirable twists and wrinkles in the tubular surface’s skin at points where the curve experiences high torsion. In our construction the tubular surface’s twist is bounded by the spacelike curve’s curvature and is independent of the spacelike curve’s torsion.
