    asymptotic lines

    Hello, I need some help with this exercise:

    Consider the surface

    $\varphi \left( {u,v} \right) = \alpha \left( u \right) + vT\left( u \right)$

    Where T is the tangent of alpha.

    Compute the asymptotic and curvature lines.

    Please help me.

    What's the definition of a line of curvature and of an asymptotic line?
