Choosing a preliminary topic for capstone project

Unless you have prior experience with differential geometry, or get another topic approved by me, the topic you'll choose for the Capstone Project will connect to assignments in 4140 so that the capstone project in 4141 and work in 4040 will complement each other. Thus, much of the work for the project will be done in concert with MAT 4140 and the focus is on preparing the formal project. Choose one of the following (and you may change topics at any time by coming back here).

cone

ellipsoid

elliptic paraboloid

Enneper's Surface

helicoid

hyperbolic paraboloid

hyperboloid of 1 sheet

hyperboloid of 2 sheets

Kuen's Surface

Mobius strip

pseudosphere

saddle

Scherk's Fifth Surface

strake

sphere

torus

Alcubierre metric or warp drive metric

anti-de Sitter metric

de Sitter metric for special relativity

Eddington-Finkelstein metric

Godel metric

Kerr metric

Kerr-Newman rotating charged black hole metric

Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) metric

Reissner-Nordstrom metric

Schwarzschild metric

Taub-NUT metric

Wormhole metric

I have prior experience with differential geometry, or another differential geometry topic that I'd like to focus on (you'll need to have this approved-so come see me)
