From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In geometry, center of curvature of a curve is found at a point that is at a distance equal to the radius of curvature lying on the normal vector. It is the point at infinity if the curvature is zero. The osculating circle to the curve is centered at the center of curvature.
