Local Heuristics and an Exact Formula for Abelian Surfaces Over Finite Fields
Consider a quartic $q$Weil polynomial $f$. Motivated by equidistribution
considerations, we define, for each prime $\ell$, a local factor
that
measures the relative frequency with which $f\bmod \ell$ occurs
as the
characteristic polynomial of a symplectic similitude over $\mathbb{F}_\ell$.
For a certain
class of polynomials, we show that the resulting infinite product
calculates the number of principally polarized abelian surfaces
over $\mathbb{F}_q$
with Weil polynomial $f$.
Keywords:abelian surfaces, finite fields, random matrices Category:14K02

Helicoidal Minimal Surfaces in a Finsler Space of Randers Type
We consider the Finsler space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$ obtained by
perturbing the Euclidean metric of $\mathbb{R}^3$ by a rotation. It
is the open region of $\mathbb{R}^3$ bounded by a cylinder with a
Randers metric. Using the BusemannHausdorff volume form, we
obtain the differential equation that characterizes the helicoidal
minimal surfaces in $\bar{M}^3$. We prove that the helicoid is a
minimal surface in $\bar{M}^3$, only if the axis of the helicoid
is the axis of the cylinder. Moreover, we prove that, in the
Randers space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$, the only minimal
surfaces in the Bonnet family, with fixed axis $O\bar{x}^3$, are the catenoids
and the helicoids.

A Short Note on Short Pants
It is a theorem of Bers that any closed hyperbolic surface admits a pants decomposition consisting of curves of bounded length where the bound only depends on the topology of the surface. The question of the quantification of the optimal constants has been well studied and the best upper bounds to date are linear in genus, a theorem of Buser and SeppÃ¤lÃ¤. The goal of this note is to give a short proof of a linear upper bound which slightly improve the best known bound.

Real Hypersurfaces in Complex TwoPlane Grassmannians with Reeb Parallel Structure Jacobi Operator
In this paper we give a characterization of a real hypersurface of
Type~$(A)$ in complex twoplane Grassmannians ${ { {G_2({\mathbb
C}^{m+2})} } }$, which means a
tube over a totally geodesic $G_{2}(\mathbb C^{m+1})$ in
${G_2({\mathbb C}^{m+2})}$, by
the Reeb parallel structure Jacobi operator ${\nabla}_{\xi}R_{\xi}=0$.

A OneDimensional Family of $K3$ Surfaces with a $\Z_4$ Action
The minimal resolution of the degree four cyclic cover of the plane
branched along a GIT stable quartic is a $K3$ surface with a non
symplectic action of $\Z_4$. In this paper
we study the geometry of the onedimensional family of $K3$ surfaces
associated to the locus of plane quartics with five nodes.

Huber's Theorem for Hyperbolic Orbisurfaces
We show that for compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces, the
Laplace spectrum determines the length spectrum as well as the
number of singular points of a given order. The converse also holds, giving
a full generalization of Huber's theorem to the setting of
compact orientable hyperbolic orbisurfaces.

A K3 Surface Associated With Certain Integral Matrices Having Integral Eigenvalues
In this article we will show that there are infinitely many
symmetric, integral $3 \times 3$ matrices, with zeros on the
diagonal, whose eigenvalues are all integral. We will do this by
proving that the rational points on a certain nonKummer, singular
K3 surface
are dense. We will also compute the entire NÃ©ronSeveri group of
this surface and find all low degree curves on it.

A Note on the Height of the Formal Brauer Group of a $K3$ Surface
Using weighted Delsarte surfaces, we give examples of $K3$ surfaces
in positive characteristic whose formal Brauer groups have height
equal to $5$, $8$ or $9$. These are among the four values of the
height left open in the article of Yui \cite{Y}.

On the Poisson Integral of Step Functions and Minimal Surfaces
Applications of minimal surface methods are made to obtain information
about univalent harmonic mappings. In the case where the mapping arises
as the Poisson integral of a step function, lower bounds for the number
of zeros of the dilatation are obtained in terms of the geometry of the
image.

Helices, Hasimoto Surfaces and BÃ¤cklund Transformations
Travelling wave solutions to the vortex filament flow generated by
elastica produce surfaces in $\R^3$ that carry mutually orthogonal
foliations by geodesics and by helices. These surfaces are classified
in the special cases where the helices are all congruent or are all
generated by a single screw motion. The first case yields a new
characterization for the B\"acklund transformation for constant
torsion curves in $\R^3$, previously derived from the wellknown
transformation for pseudospherical surfaces. A similar investigation
for surfaces in $H^3$ or $S^3$ leads to a new transformation for
constant torsion curves in those spaces that is also derived from
pseudospherical surfaces.
