Department of Mathematics, Tafresh University, Tafresh, P.C 39518-79611, Iran


In this paper we are supposed to define the θ−vector field on the n−surface S and then investigate about the existence and uniqueness of its integral curves by the Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations. Then the
subject is followed through some examples.
