Existence of global Chebyshev nets on surfaces of absolute Gaussian curvature less than 2π

Abstract : We prove the existence of a global smooth Chebyshev net on complete, simply connected surfaces when the total absolute curvature is bounded by 2π. Following Samelson and Dayawansa, we look at Chebyshev nets given by a dual curve, splitting the surface into two connected half-surfaces, and a distribution of angles along it. An analogue to the Hazzidakis formula is used to control the angles of the net on each half-surface with the integral of the Gaussian curvature of this half-surface and the Cauchy boundary conditions. We can then prove the main result using a theorem about splitting the Gaussian curvature with a geodesic, obtained by Bonk and Lang.
