GANG Minimal Surface Lab

MinLab is an interactive laboratory for computing, viewing and investigating minimal surfaces in R3 via the Weierstrass representation.
  • To see what MinLab can do, visit the GANG Gallery of Minimal Surfaces.
  • MinLab is built with the OpenGL/Mesa library and the GTK+ user interface.
  • MinLab was created by Nick Schmitt at the Center for Geometry, Analysis, Numerics and Graphics (GANG).

MinLab Features:

  • Implements the Weierstrass representation for construction of minimal surfaces.

Interactive Features:
  • Complete interactive environment for constructing, viewing and exploring minimal surfaces.
  • Integrated with iSight, the GANG interactive geometry viewer.
  • Interactively move through the associate family of minimal surfaces.
  • Built in triangulator triangulates the domain. Or use an underlying grid.
  • Built in sequencer for making video clips.
