Lecture notes:
    minimal.pdf   Minimal surfaces made with complex analysis.

Maple Procedures. The files ending in ".mws" are Maple worksheets. Save them to your directory or computer, and open them from Maple. If you want to see what's in these files without opening Maple, read the ".ps" or ".pdf" versions.
    gaussmap1.mws   Study the triple composition (St)oUoX for conformal minimal surfaces  

    WEreps.mws   Use the Weierstrass-Enneper procedure to construct minimal surfaces from (easy) analytic data.  

    History of Math Site   Look up your favorite historical mathematicians.
