# Labs Septic

A **septic surface** is one defined by a polynomial equation of degree 7. The Labs septic, drawn above by Abdelaziz Nait Merzouk, is a septic surface with the maximum possible number of **ordinary double points**: that is, points where it looks like the origin of the cone in 3-dimensional space defined by \( x^2 + y^2 = z^2\).
