Abstract. There is a number of methods to compute minimal surfaces. This paper presentes a computer program that solves Plateau's problem, joining a recent iteractive method of Pinkall and Polthier with numerical and computer graphic methods ensuring more efficiency and robustness. The system will be able to generate a discrete minimal surface from a fixed boundary (a set of closed polygonal curves).
