On the developable ruled surfaces Kinematically generated in Minkowski 3-Space



In this paper, we present a method to be developable of a ruled surface, generated in Minkowski 3-space R corresponding to the dual Lorentzian curves according to E. Study's transference principle and some theorems and examples.
