Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 14)


The main purpose of the present paper is to study isometric immersions of the Euclidean plane E2 and the Lorentzian plane L2 into the 3-dimensional Lorentzian manifolds S3 1 and H3 1, of constant sectional curvature 1 and -1, respectively.
