A complete conformal metric of preassigned negative Gaussian curvature for a punctured hyperbolic Riemann surface
Leth be a complete metric of Gaussian curvature K0 on a punctured Riemann surface of genusg ≥ 1 (or the sphere with at least three punctures). Given a smooth negative functionK withK =K0 in neighbourhoods of the punctures we prove that there exists a metric conformal toh which attains this function as its Gaussian curvature for the punctured Riemann surface. We do so by minimizing an appropriate functional using elementary analysis.
