Abstract. It is known that every two-dimensional Riemannian manifold Mwith Gaussian curvature of constant signs has recurrent Riemannian — Chrictoffel curvature tensor R. The following equality holds: ∇R = d ln |K| ⊗ R, where is Riemannian metric M2∇ is Riemannian connection.

     Let E4 be 4-dimensional Euclidean space with Cartesian coordinates (x1, x2, x3, x4), F2 is two-dimensional surface in E4 given by vector equation


    The properties of surfaces F2 with nonzero Gaussian torsion æ ≠ 0 in Euclidean space E4 are studied in this article.
    Let R be normal curvature tensor of F2E4, D is normal connection, is connection of van der Waerden — Bortolotti.

    Normal curvature tensor  R 0 is called parallel if . Normal curvature tensor R ≠ 0 is called recurrent (in connection ∇) if there exists 1-form ν on F2 such that .
    The following statement is proved in this article. A surface F2 with nonzero Gaussian torsion æ ≠ 0 in E4 has recurrent normal curvature tensor R:

    The characteristic feature of 2-dimensional surfaces F2 with constant Gaussian torsion æ ≡ const ≠ 0 in 4-dimensional Euclidean space E4 was obtained in this article.
    It was proved that surface F2E4 has constant Gaussian torsion æ ≡ const ≠ 0 if and only if normal curvature tensor R ≠ 0 is parallel in connection of van der Waerden — Bortolotti.

Key words: Gaussian torsion, ellipse of normal curvature, normal curvature tensor, normal connection, connection of van der Waerden — Bortolotti.
