Geodesic -- In mathematics and specifically in differential geometry, a geodesic is a path that furnishes shortest paths between any points on it that are close enough together. The most familiar examples are the straight lines in Euclidean geometry. In more general spaces the geodesics can be more complicated, but one often still thinks of them as "straight" in a sense. On a sphere, for instance, the geodesics are the great circles. The shortest path from point A to point B on a...
