# Liouville surface

In the mathematical field of differential geometry a **Liouville surface** is a type of surface which in local coordinates may be written as a graph in **R**^{3}

such that the first fundamental form is of the form

Sometimes a metric of this form is called a **Liouville metric**. Every surface of revolution is a Liouville surface.
