Definition Of Curvilinear Coordinates

Curvilinear coordinates utilize a coordinate system where the coordinate lines, or axes, can be curved. This is useful because some problems do not fit ideally into Cartesian (x, y, z) coordinates. To find the curvilinear coordinate for three functions of f (f1(x, y, z), f2(x, y, z), and f3(x, y, z)), set each function to …
