We consider Lorentz surfaces in $\mathbb R^3_1$ satisfying the condition $H^2-K\neq 0$, where $K$ and $H$ are the Gauss curvature and the mean curvature, respectively, and call them Lorentz surfaces of general type. For this class of surfaces we introduce special isotropic coordinates, which we call canonical, and show that the coefficient $F$ of the first fundamental form and the mean curvature $H$, expressed in terms of the canonical coordinates, satisfy a special integro-differential…
