Suppose that we have a section of a smooth curve C with limited curvature. The terms “smooth” and “limited curvature” imply concepts which, in the strict sense, require precise definition. Since, however, the considerable discussion to make these definitions precise would lead us astray, insofar as our purposes are concerned, we content ourselves in leaving the significance of these terms to our intuition.

This section of the smooth curve C is to be a portion of a time-distance curve of a seismic event for the straight-line interval indicated in Figure 83 as the x-axis between pickup positions Pl:Xl and P2:X2.
