The denominators of Lagrangian surfaces in complex Euclidean plane

  • Katsuhiro MoriyaEmail author
Original Paper


A quotient of two linearly independent quaternionic holomorphic sections of a quaternionic holomorphic line bundle over a Riemann surface is a conformal branched immersion from a Riemann surface to four-dimensional Euclidean space. On the assumption that a quaternionic holomorphic line bundle is associated with a Lagrangian-branched immersion from a Riemann surface to complex Euclidean plane, we shall classify the denominators of Lagrangian-branched immersion from a Riemann surface to complex Euclidean plane.
