The text presents the birational classification of holomorphic foliations of surfaces. It discusses at length the theory developed by L.G. Mendes, M. McQuillan and the author to study foliations of surfaces in the spirit of the classification of complex algebraic surfaces.

Marco Brunella was a CNRS researcher working at Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne in Dijon, France. He has produced extraordinary mathematical work, focusing on the study of Holomorphic Foliations and Complex Geometry. Dr. Brunella passed away in January 2012, but his profound, creative mathematics continues to have an impact on g...
