From Golden spirals to constant slope surfaces. (English) Zbl 1311.14037
Summary: In this paper, we find all constant slope surfaces in the Euclidean 3-space, namely, those surfaces for which the position vector of a point of the surface makes constant angle with the normal at the surface in that point. These surfaces could be thought as the bidimensional analog of the generalized helices. Some pictures are drawn by using the parametric equations we found.
