Pretzel Surface

The Pretzel surface is an algebraic surface.


A More Mathematical Explanation

The equation for the pretzel surface is given by:

f(x,y,z) =  (((x-1)^2 + y^2 - aa^2) * ((x+1)^2 + y^2 - aa^2))^2 + z^2

The equation for the pretzel surface is given by: f(x,y,z) =  (((x-1)^2 + y^2 - aa^2) * ((x+1)^2 + y^2 - aa^2))^2 + z^2
