In this work, the embankment surfaces with pseudo null base curves are investigated in Minkowski 3-space. The representation formula of pseudo null curves is obtained via the defined structure functions and the k-type pseudo null helices are discussed completely. Based on the theories of pseudo null curves, a class of embankment surfaces are constructed and characterized by the structure functions of the pseudo null base curves. View Full-Text
