RICHMOND SURFACE

Herbert William Richmond (1863-1948): British mathematician. |

Cartesian parametrization:
(where ). Rational algebraic surface. |

The Richmond surface of order *n* is the minimal
surface obtained by taking
in the Weierstrass parametrization of a minimal
surface: .

Richmond surface of order 4

The Richmond surface of order 0 (that corresponds to )
is none other than the catenoid.

Compare to the Enneper
surface, another minimal surface.
