On the curvature of nonregular saddle surfaces in the hyperbolic and spherical three-space

Received09 Nov 2001

Abstract

This paper proves that any nonregular nonparametric saddle surface in a three-dimensional space of nonzero constant curvature k, which is bounded by a rectifiable curve, is a space of curvature not greater than k in the sense of Aleksandrov. This generalizes a classical theorem by Shefel' on saddle surfaces in 𝔼3.
