Abstract. In this paper we study a large class of Weingarten surfaces which includes the constant mean curvature one surfaces and flat surfaces in the hyperbolic 3-space. We show that these surfaces can be parametrized by holomorphic data like minimal surfaces in the Euclidean 3-space and we use it to study their completeness. We also establish some existence and uniqueness theorems by studing the Plateau problem at infinity: when is a given curve on the ideal boundary the asymptotic boundary of a complete surface in our family? and, how many embedded solutions are there? 1
