In algebraic geometry, an Endrass surface is a nodal surface of degree 8 with 168 real nodes, found by Endrass (1997).[1] As of 2007, it remained the record-holder for the most number of real nodes for its degree;[2] however, the best proven upper bound, 174, does not match the lower bound given by this surface.[2][3]
