Similar and self-similar curves in Minkowski $$n$$-space. (English) Zbl 1332.53018
Summary: In this paper, we investigate the similarity transformations in the Minkowski $$n$$-space. We study the geometric invariants of non-null curves under the similarity transformations. Besides, we extend the fundamental theorem for a non-null curve according to a similarity motion of $$\mathbb E_1^n$$. We determine the parametrizations of non-null self-similar curves in $$\mathbb E_1^n$$.
