Abstract  

By the method of synthetic geometry, we define a seemingly new transformation of a three-dimensional projective space where the corresponding points lie on the rays of the first order, nth class congruence C n 1 and are conjugate with respect to a proper quadric Ψ. We prove that this transformation maps a straight line onto an n + 2 order space curve and a plane onto an n + 2 order surface which contains an n-ple (i.e. n-multiple) straight line. It is shown that in the Euclidean space the pedal surfaces of the congruences C n 1 can be obtained by this transformation. The analytical approach enables new visualizations of the resulting curves and surfaces with the program Mathematica. They are shown in four examples.
