3.5. Dini's Surface

[next]

The Dini Surface [ 2,7,11 ] is represented by the following equations.

 

x = a cos(u) sin(v)

3-21

 

y = a sin(u) sin(v)

3-22

 

z = a [cos(v) + ln(tan(v/2))] + bu

3-23

The constants a and b determine the appearance of the figure.

To represent the area, the two parameters u and v can assume the following values ​​(domain of definition), for example.

 

u is an element from the set of numbers [0, 4 pi]

 
 

v is an element of the number set [0.01, 2]

 

The parameter v must not be zero, otherwise there will be an error in the calculation. The expression ln(tan(0.5 v)) is then not defined.
