Bra*chys"to*chrone (&?;), n. [Incorrect for
brachistochrone, fr. Gr. bra`chistos shortest (superl. of
brachy`s short) + &?; time : cf. F. brachistochrone. ]
(Math.) A curve, in which a body, starting from a given point,
and descending solely by the force of gravity, will reach another given
point in a shorter time than it could by any other path. This curve of
quickest descent, as it is sometimes called, is, in a vacuum, the same
as the cycloid.
