Abstract

Rabinowitz constructed a parametric curve of constant width and expressed it as a plane algebraic curve; however, the algebraic curve also contains isolated points separate from the original curve. We show how to modify his example in order to produce a curve with no isolated points. We then conjecture a method for producing a family of such curves and prove the conjecture in several cases.
