The aim of this paper is to study AW(k)-type (1 ≤ k ≤ 3) curves according to the equiform differential geometry of the pseudo-Galilean space G1 3. We give some geometric properties of AW(k) and weak AW(k)-type curves. Moreover, we give some relations between the equiform curvatures of these curves. Finally, examples of some special curves are given and plotted to support our main results.
