This survey introduces a class of infinite genus Riemann surfaces, specified by means of a number of geometric axioms, to which the classical theory of compact Riemann surfaces up to and including the Torelli Theorem extends. The axioms are flexible enough to include a number of interesting examples, such as the heat curve. We discuss this example and its(More)
