A hyperbolic linear Weingarten surface in ℝ3 is a surface M whose mean and Gaussian curvatures satisfy the relationship 2aH +bK = c for real numbers a, b, c such that a2+bc < 0. In this work we obtain a representation for such a surface in terms of its Gauss map when, more generally, a, b, c are functions on M. We also study the completeness of such surfaces and describe a procedure to construct complete examples from solutions of the sine-Gordon equation.
