At the end of the 19th century Bricard discovered the phenomenon of flexible polyhedra, that is, polyhedra with rigid faces and hinges at edges that admit non-trivial flexes. One of the most important results in this field is a theorem of Sabitov, asserting that the volume of a flexible polyhedron is constant during the flexion. In this paper we study flexible polyhedral surfaces in $\mathbb {R}^{3}$, doubly periodic with respect to translations by two non-collinear vectors, that can vary…
