Alfred Enneper (June 14, 1830, Barmen – March 24, 1885 Hanover) was a German mathematician. Enneper earned his PhD from the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 1856, under the supervision of Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet, for his dissertation about functions with complex arguments. [1 ] [2 ] After his [3 ] habilitation in 1859 in Göttingen, he was from 1870 on Professor (Extraordinarius) at Göttingen. [3 ]
minimal surfaces and parametrized Enneper's minimal surfaces in 1863. A contemporary of Karl Weierstrass, the two created a whole class of parameterizations, the Enneper–Weierstrass parameterization. [4 ] [5 ]
