CLASSIFICATION OF RULED SURFACES WITH POINTWISE 1-TYPE GAUSS MAP
Ruled surfaces with the Gauss map satisfying a partial differential equation which is similar to an eigenvalue problem in a 3-dimensional Euclidean space are studied. Such a Gauss map is said to be of pointwise 1-type, namely, the Gauss map $G$ satisfies $\Delta G = f(G+C)$, where $\Delta$ is the Laplacian operator, $f$ is a non-zero function and $C$ is a constant vector. As a result, such ruled surfaces are completely determined by the function $f$ and the vector $C$ when their Gauss map is of pointwise 1-type. New examples of ruled surfaces called cylinders of an infinite type and rotational ruled surfaces are introduced in this regard.
