Abstract: We shall discuss the class of surfaces with holomorphic right Gauss maps in non-compact duals of compact semi-simple Lie groups (e.g. ), which contains minimal surfaces in and constant mean curvature surfaces in . A Weierstrass type representation formula and a Chern-Osserman type inequality for such surfaces are given.
