surfacethat extends infinitely? For example, if I have an equation \(x^{2} + y^{2} = 1\) in 3-space, that's a cylinder that extends infinitely in both directions concerning the z-axis. – Hobart Pao · 1 year, 6 months agoLog in to reply

It's an interesting question. Somewhat easy to visualize, but hard to describe completely. – Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 6 months ago
