- the rate of change (at a point) of the angle between a curve and a tangent to the curve
- (medicine) a curving or bending; often abnormal; "curvature of the spine"
In mathematics, curvature refers to any of a number of loosely related concepts in different areas of geometry. Intuitively, curvature is the amount by which a geometric object deviates from being flat, or straight in the case of a line, but this is defined in different ways depending on the context.
