Curves of Contact of Any Order on Algebraic Surfaces
Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, Ser. 2, Vol. 11 (1913), 398-410


A recent paper referred incidentally to contact of cubic surfaces along a straight line; the present investigation generalizes these ideas and determines the postulation and equivalence of contact of any order of a family of algebraic surfaces along a curve, subject only to certain restrictions as to the nature of the singularities.
