Picard Numbers of Quintic Surfaces

An algebraic surface is defined as the set of points that satisfy a polynomial equation . The Picard number for an algebraic surface is a measure of the complexity of the curves on the surface. Algebraic surfaces with Picard numbers 1 to 45 are presented according to [1] and [2] containing parameters and .
