Can you parametrize the space of isometric embeddings of the hyperbolic plane into Minkowski 3-space? In joint work with Francesco Bonsante and Andrea Seppi, we parametrize at least a good chunk of them in terms of asymptotic data. I'll describe our approach as well as connections to the asymptotic behavior of harmonic maps, and to some constructions in Teichmuller theory.
