# Enneper surface

An algebraic minimal surface covering a surface of revolution. Its parametric equation is

$$x = \frac{1}{4} ( u ^ {3} - 3 u - 3 u v ^ {2} ) ,$$

$$y = \frac{1}{4} ( 3 v + 3 u ^ {2} v - v ^ {3} ) ,$$

$$z = \frac{3}{4} ( v ^ {2} - u ^ {2} ) .$$

It was discovered by A. Enneper in 1864.
