Now, for a given isometric immersion of a surface, x : [N.sup.2.sub.v] [right arrow] [M.sup.3.sub.r] ([rho]), v [member of] {0,1}, we denote by [nabla] the Levi-Civita connection of the immersion ([N.sup.2.sub.v], x).
Thus, from the fundamental theorem of submanifolds ([8], [section]2.7), given functions [kappa](s, t), [tau](s, t), and F(s, t), smoothly defined on a connected domain U and satisfying (40) and (41), there exists a solution of (30)-(32) (and, consequently, of (20)-(21)) determining a smooth isometric immersion (U, x) (unique up to rigid motions, if U is simply connected) of a surface in [M.sup.3]([rho]) whose metric and the second fundamental form are given, respectively, by [mathematical expression not reproducible], where [h.sub.22] is obtained from (29).
where A is a symmetric (1,1)-tensor, is equivalent to the Gauss and Codazzi equations and therefore to an isometric immersion of ([M.sup.2], g) into [R.sup.3] with -2A as shape operator.
Let [gamma] be a closed curve of length 2[pi]r: If x : g [right arrow] [R.sup.m] is an isometric immersion, then
It is a natural question whether f is an isometric immersion (with respect to the Webster metrics [g.sub.[Theta]], [g.sub.[Theta]], cf.
The mapping [alpha], [alpha](x,y) = (c(x),y), is an isometric immersion of [R.sup.2] into [R.sup.4], where c(x) is a curve in [R.sup.3] [congruent to] [R.sup.3] x{0}, x being the arc length parameter.
Let x : [M.sup.n] - [S.sup.n+p.sub.q](1) (n [greater than or equal to] 3,1 [less than or equal to] q [less than or equal to] v) be a substantial isometric immersion of a complete Riemannian manifold.
