Minimal Surface

Fake Diamonds

Below is something rare. You see two minimal surfaces in an (invisible) box that share many properties, but also couldn’t be more different.

Let’s first talk about what they have in common: They share lines at the top and bottom of the box, and they meet the vertical faces of the same box orthogonally. 146 more words


Deceptive Similarities

This story begins in 1988 with the first examples of doubly periodic embedded minimal surfaces where the top and bottom ends are parallel and asymptotic to vertical half planes. 278 more words


This Is Not a Helicoid

But almost. It has a vertical axis, lots of horizontal lines, and it twists.

But it is part of something bigger, a triply periodic minimal surface. 116 more words
