Experiments in the Theory of SurfacesYoshihiko Tazawa

The purpose of this article is to show the advantage of using Mathematica in the theory of surfaces. The examples in the classical differential geometry, namely the theory of curves and surfaces,
have been confined to a small group of calculable objects, because of the difficulty in evaluating geometrical quantities
and solving differential equations explicitly. But Mathematica has made it possible to deal with a wide range of objects and to perform experimental treatments of them, based on the power
of numerical calculation--the
