In the following we assume that the surfaces are smooth, that is, they are assumed to be images of parameterised surfaces \boldsymbol{\Phi}:D\to\mathbb{R}^3 for which:

(Notice, the condition that {}D is compact can also be replaced by the condition that the surface S=\{\boldsymbol{\Phi}(u,v): (u,v)\in D\} is compact.)

Surface area Continue reading
