x(u,v) = (1+\frac{v}{2}\cos \frac{u}{2})\cos u
x(u,v)=(1+v2cosu2)cosux(u,v) = (1+\frac{v}{2}\cos \frac{u}{2})\cos u
y(u,v) = (1+\frac{v}{2}\cos \frac{u}{2})\sin u
y(u,v)=(1+v2cosu2)sinuy(u,v) = (1+\frac{v}{2}\cos \frac{u}{2})\sin u
z(u,v) = \frac{v}{2}\sin \frac{u}{2}
z(u,v)=v2sinu2z(u,v) = \frac{v}{2}\sin \frac{u}{2}
