3D symmetric tensor fields have a wide range of applications in science and engineering. The topology of a symmetric tensor field, which consists of degenerate curves, can provide critical insights into the behaviors of the tensor fields. Existing methods to extract degenerate curves make some assumptions of the maximum number of degenerate curves in a cell without validating this bound. In this paper, we study the maximum number of degenerate curves in a linear tensor field to contribute to accurate and efficient extraction methods.
