Abstract:

In this paper we develop a global correspondence between immersed horospherically convex hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space and complete conformal metrics on domains in the sphere. We establish results on when the hyperbolic Gauss map is injective and when an immersed horospherically convex hypersurface can be unfolded along the normal flow into an embedded one. These results allow us to establish general Alexandrov reflection principles of elliptic problems of both Weingarten hypersurfaces and complete conformal metrics and relations between them. Consequently, we are able to obtain, for instance, a strong Bernstein theorem for a complete, immersed, horospherically convex hypersurface of constant mean curvature in hyperbolic space.
