HOROTIGHT IMMERSIONS OF S^1
Preprint Series # 711 Buosi, Marcelo and Izumiya, Shyuichi and Soares Ruas, Mria Aoarecida HOROTIGHT IMMERSIONS OF S^1. (2005); AbstractWe characterize horotight immersions into $\D^m$ in terms of a
family of real valued functions parametrized by $\Ss^{m1}$. By
means of such functions we provide an elementary proof that
horotightness and tightness are equivalent properties in the class
of immersions from $S^1$ into hyperbolic space.
