The Uniformisation Theorem

The Uniformisation Theorem

(p.131) 10 The Uniformisation Theorem
Riemann Surfaces

Simon Donaldson

Oxford University Press

This chapter proves the following theorem. Theorem 12: Let X be a connected, simply connected, non-compact Riemann surface. Then X is equivalent to either C or the upper half-plane H. The proof presented here follows the same general pattern as one already given to classify compact simply connected Riemann surfaces, but the non-compactness will require some extra steps.

Keywords:   Theorem 12, Riemann surface, proof, theorems
