    On geometrically finite negatively curved surfaces, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for a one-sided horocycle (hsu)s≥0 to be dense in the nonwandering set of the horocyclic flow. We prove that all dense one-sided orbits (hsu)s≥0 are equidistributed, extending results of...

    In a plane hyperbolic geometry (in the sense of F. Bachmann's book 'Aufbau der Geometrie aus dem Spiegelungsbegriff') we prove that an asymptotic n-gon does not admit a transversal when n is odd; the assumption of n being odd is crucial. For each n one finds an asymptotic n-gon that does not...

    Surfaces of general type with positive second Segre number s2: = c12 − c2 > 0 are known by the results of Bogomolov to be algebraically quasi-hyperbolic, that is, with finitely many rational and elliptic curves. These results were extended by McQuillan in his proof of the...

    We prove the so-called unitary isotropy theorem, a result on isotropy of a unitary involution. The analogous previously known results on isotropy of orthogonal and symplectic involutions as well as on hyperbolicity of orthogonal, symplectic, and unitary involutions are formal consequences of...
