There is an image from this book.(page 22)

I want to plot it, but I don't know equation of this surface.

enter image description here

Anyone have an idea about it and how to plot it with Mathematica?

    $\begingroup$ while interesting, I feel like this is more of a math question on how to parametrize that surface $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You might look at the parametric plot of a Klein bottle, it has similar properties (not the same though). See this link. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 1, 2017 at 15:19
  • $\begingroup$ You could get a shape of the right topology at least by using RegionUnion, RegionDifference etc. on a Sphere, some Cylinder's, and a torus (as an ImplicitRegion perhaps). $\endgroup$
