The following surfaces have no mathematical significance. They are more for the looks.

Almost all the images and surface data on this site are from Richard Palais's 3D-XplorMath software. I like to thank Richard for much of his personal help and encouragement over the years. I also like to thank Hermann Karcher for his help and some of his math expositions used on this website.
Check out my friends professor Richard Palais and Robert Palais's book. Many free chapters in PDF. Differential Equations, Mechanics, and Computation
