Sweeping is a powerful and versatile method for de fining surfaces. It involves moving an n-dimensional manifold along a 1-dimensional manifold and computing the surface traced out during the above operation. We will refer to the 1-dimensional manifold along which the sweep occurs as the trajectory. In this talk we will consider sweeping a 1-dimensional manifold along a given trajectory.
