Deformation of Surfaces in Threespace

    Project Details

    Description

    Given an embedded two-dimensional surface in three space, and a smooth deformation of the metric (the first fundamental form), is it then possible for this intrinsic deformation of the metric to be induced by an extrinsic deformation of the embedding. If the intrinsic deformation is trivial (the metric is constant), then the question is the so called bending problem.
