This article defines a property that makes sense for a surface embedded in \R^3, viz three-dimensional Euclidean space. The property is invariant under orthogonal transformations and scaling, i.e., under all similarity transformations.

A surface embedded in \R^3 is termed a minimal surface if the mean curvature at every point on the surface is zero.
