Hello all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand that a two dimensional surface can have curvature without it being referred to a higher dimension. So that a surface such as that of a sphere does not need to refer to a third dimension to determine its own intrinsic curvature and so on for higher dimensions.

Can a one dimensional space/surface such as a line have intrinsic curvature.
