    Please can anyone provide some background information about Copenhagen Ships Curves. I know what they are but I can find no information about them in terms of

    1) why they are so named
    2) how many curves make up a set -- have seen numbers ranging from 36 to 56
    3) who invented them and when
    4) [most mysterious of all] and how they also, apparently, became known as French Curves - given the geography:)

    Any ideas would be really welcome

    many thanks
