SUMMARY

This monograph is based on the work of the author on surface theory conยญ nected with ball uniformizations and arithmetic ball lattices during several years appearing in a lot of special articles. The first four chapters present the heart of this work in a self-contained manner (up to well-known baยญ sic facts) increased by the new functorial concept of orbital heights living on orbital surfaces. It is extended in chapter 6 to an explicit HURWITZ theory for CHERN numbers of complex algebraic surfaces with the mildest singularities, which are necessary for general application and proofs. The chapter 5 is dedicated to the application of results in earlier chapters to rough and fine classifications of PICARD modular surfaces. For this part we need additionally the arithmetic work of FEUSTEL whose final results are presented without proofs but with complete references. We had helpยญ ful connections with Russian mathematicians around VENKOV, VINBERG, MANIN, SHAFAREVICH and the nice guide line of investigations of HILBERT modular surfaces started by HIRZEBRUCH in Bonn. More recently, we can refer to the independent (until now) study of Zeta functions of PICARD modular surfaces in the book [L-R] edited by LANGLANDS and RAMAKRยญ ISHN AN. The basic idea of introducing arrangements on surfaces comes from the monograph [BHH], (BARTHEL, HOFER, HIRZEBRUCH) where linear arยญ rangements on the complex projective plane ]p2 play the main role
