Wikipedia says
A curve is, generally speaking, an object similar to a line (geometry) but which is not required to be straight. Often curves in two-dimensional or three-dimensional Euclidean space are of interest. Different disciplines within mathematics have given the term different meanings depending on the area of study, so the precise meaning depends on context.
