Abstract

In this article we prove that a fiat nonplanar surface in the Euclidean space E-3 with pointwise 1-type Gauss map of the second kind is either a right circular cone or a cylinder such that the curvature of the base curve satisfies a specific differential equation. We conclude that there is no tangent developable surface in E-3 with pointwise 1-type Gauss map of the second kind.
