Abstract

There is an elegant relation found by Fabricius-Bjerre [Math. Scand 40 (1977) 20–24] among the double tangent lines, crossings, inflections points, and cusps of a singular curve in the plane. We give a new generalization to singular curves in RP2. We note that the quantities in the formula are naturally dual to each other in RP2, and we give a new dual formula.

Keywords
knots, $RP^2$, plane curves, singular curves
