In this article we show that any hyperbolic Inoue surface (also called Inoue-Hirzebruch surface of even type) admits anti-self-dual bihermitian structures. The same result holds for any of its small deformations as far as its anti-canonical system is non-empty. Similar results are obtained for parabolic Inoue surfaces. Our method also yields a family of anti-self-dual hermitian metrics on any half Inoue surface. We use the twistor method of Donaldson-Friedman for the proof.
Given a compact orientable surface, we determine a complete set of relations for a function defined on the set of all homotopy classes of simple loops to be a geometric intersection number function. As a consequence, Thurston’s space of measured laminations and Thurston’s compactification of the Teichmüller space are described by a set of explicit equations. These equations are polynomials in the max-plus semi-ring structure on the real numbers. It shows that Thurston’s theory of measured laminations is within the domain of tropical geometry.
We prove that the quotient space of a variationally complete group action is a good Riemannian orbifold. The result is generalized to singular Riemannian foliations without horizontal conjugate points.
