Abstract: Based on the work of Pinkall, characterizations of spherical curves are given whose corresponding Hopf cylinders are isothermic surfaces in the three-dimensional sphere. Comparing these characterizations with results of Langer and Singer about elastic spherical curves we determine all isothermic Willmore Hopf tori.
Keywords: isothermic surface, Hopf cylinder, Clifford torus, Willmore surface
