Abstract

Roughly speaking, a regular surface in \(\mathbb{R}^3\) is a two-dimensional set of points, in the sense that it can be locally described by two parameters (the local coordinates) and with the property that it is smooth enough (that is, there are no vertices, edges, or self-intersections) to guarantee the existence of a tangent plane to the surface at each point.
