Find the local exteremes of a periodic boundary

Hello Everyone,
I’m looking for a way to find the local extremes of a periodic boundary. When I choose to work with periodic boundary the extremes can be found in several directions (I used RhinoCurveExtremeParameters method). Does anyone have any idea how to find local extremes of a periodic curve without optimization solvers?
P.S I’m not sure if those points are called local extremes.

I guess you’re looking for MaxCurvaturePoints:

private void RunScript(Curve curve, ref object A)
{
  A = curve.MaxCurvaturePoints();
}

Hi Mahdiyar. Is that a custom made function? Because it doesn’t exist in my library.

It’s only available in Rhino 7 WIP.

So then it’s the question how we can have it in Rhino 6? Maybe there is a way if we can understand the mathematical solution.

from Curve.MaxCurvaturePoints Method:

The maximum curvature points identify where the curvature starts to decrease in both directions from the points.

Thanks Joseph. it works well.
