About the Authors
  • A table of the different types of quartic ruled surfaces in three-dimensional space was published by Cremona in 1868. The corresponding tables of quintic and sextic ruled surfaces (classified by means of their double curves and bitangent developables) are presented in this book, first published in 1931. The results are obtained by two different methods which confirm the workings of one another in a very striking way. Correspondence theory and higher space are used throughout and properties of several interesting curves and loci are investigated.
