Unduloids and their geometry. (English) Zbl 1199.53008
Summary: We consider non-compact cylinder-like surfaces called unduloids and study some aspects of their geometry. In particular, making use of a Kenmotsu-type representation of these surfaces, we derive explicit formulas for the lengths and areas of arbitrary segments, along with a formula for the volumes enclosed by them.
