López Minimal Klein Bottle

The López–Klein bottle is the unique complete minimal Klein bottle in that is once-punctured, one-ended (the boundary has one connected component), and with a total curvature of . It represents the simplest complete minimal immersion and the only complete nonorientable minimal surface in this topology. It is homeomorphic to a Klein bottle with the exception of one point.
