## Horn Torus

One of the three Standard Tori given by the parametric equations

 (1) (2) (3)

with . The inversion of a horn torus is a Horn Cyclide (or Parabolic Horn Cyclide). The above left figure shows a horn torus, the middle a cutaway, and the right figure shows a Cross-Section of the horn torus through the -plane.
