But the very fact that they were calling on her—that they might need to know about (as she had expressed it in her doctoral dissertation, Non-gravity Bent __Geodesics__ of n-Spatial Reference Frames: An Approach to Superspace Visualization and Probability Clustering)—made her even more apprehensive.

She had even begun to chart the __geodesics__ of higher fractional spaces, and the way these __geodesics__ might project in five and four-space.

About midway through the list appeared, Theory of n-Spatial __Geodesics__ as Applied to Newtonian Physics with a Special Discourse on Rho-Simplon Worm Lines.

That curvature defines the __geodesics__, that is, the `shortest' lines in space, just the way the curvature of the sphere will define the __geodesics__ of its surface, that is, what we call `great circles.
