 English term or phrase: signed curvature Context: Gaussian Curvature Calculation: At any point on a curve in the plane, the line that best approximates the curve passing through this point is the tangent line. Alternatively you can also find the best approximating circle that passes through this point and is tangent to the curve. The reciprocal of the radius of this circle is the curvature of the curve at this point. The best approximating circle may lie either to the left of the curve, or to the right of the curve. If this is key, then a convention is established, such as giving the curvature positive sign if the circle lies to the left and negative sign if the circle lies to the right of the curve. This is known as *signed curvature*.
