Abstract

We give a geometric classification of regular ends with constant mean curvature $1$ and finite total curvature, embedded in hyperbolic space. We prove that each such end is either asymptotic to a catenoid cousin or asymptotic to a horosphere. We also study symmetry properties of constant mean curvature $1$ surfaces in hyperbolic space associated to minimal surfaces in Euclidean space. We describe the constant mean curvature $1$ surfaces in $\hi3$ associated to the family of surfaces in $\m3$ that is isometric to the helicoid.
