On the Quartic Developable
The quartic developable is generated by the tangents of a twisted cubic. Taking the cubic as
x = t3, y = t2, z = t,w = I, (I)
the equation of the developable is
f(x,y,z,w)=6xyzw-4y3w-4xz3+3y2z2-x2w2 = 0. (2)
The object of this paper is to obtain a remarkable property regarding the first polar surfaces of this developable.
