Functiontheoretic Properties for the Gauss Maps of Various Classes of Surfaces
We elucidate the geometric background of functiontheoretic properties
for the Gauss maps of
several classes of immersed surfaces in threedimensional space
forms, for example, minimal surfaces in Euclidean threespace, improper affine spheres in the affine threespace, and constant
mean curvature one surfaces and flat surfaces in hyperbolic threespace. To achieve this purpose, we prove an optimal curvature bound
for a specified conformal metric on an open Riemann surface and give some applications. We also provide unicity theorems for
the Gauss maps of these classes of surfaces.
Keywords:Gauss map, minimal surface, constant mean curvature surface, front, ramification, omitted value, the Ahlfors island theorem, unicity theorem. Categories:53C42, 30D35, 30F45, 53A10, 53A15

Meromorphic Functions Sharing the Same Zeros and Poles
In this paper, Hinkkanen's problem (1984) is completely solved,
{\em i.e.,} it is shown that any meromorphic function $f$ is determined
by its zeros and poles
and the zeros of $f^{(j)}$ for $j=1,2,3,4$

Rational Solutions of PainlevÃ© Equations
Consider the sixth Painlev\'e equation~(P$_6$) below where $\alpha$,
$\beta$, $\gamma$ and $\delta$ are complex parameters. We prove the
necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of rational
solutions of equation~(P$_6$) in term of special relations among the
parameters. The number of distinct rational solutions in each case is
exactly one or two or infinite. And each of them may be generated by
means of transformation group found by Okamoto [7] and B\"acklund
transformations found by Fokas and Yortsos [4]. A list of rational
solutions is included in the appendix. For the sake of completeness,
we collected all the corresponding results of other five Painlev\'e
equations (P$_1$)(P$_5$) below, which have been investigated by many
authors [1][7].
