Abstract

Delaunay surfaces are investigated by using a moving frame approach. These surfaces correspond to surfaces of revolution in the Euclidean three-space. A set of basic one-forms is defined. Moving frame equations can be formulated and studied. Related differential equation which depend on variables relevant to the surface are obtained. For the case of minimal and constant mean curvature surfaces, the coordinate functions can be calculated in closed form. In the case in which the mean curvature is constant, these functions can be expressed in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions.
