On Surfaces that are Intrinsically Surfaces of Revolution

28 Jul 2016  ·  Freese Daniel, Weber Matthias ·

We consider surfaces in Euclidean space parametrized on an annular domain such that the first fundamental form and the principal curvatures are rotationally invariant, and the principal curvature directions only depend on the angle of rotation (but not the radius). Such surfaces generalize the Enneper surface... We show that they are necessarily of constant mean curvature, and that the rotational speed of the principal curvature directions is constant. We classify the minimal case. The (non-zero) constant mean curvature case has been classified by Smyth. read more
