Abstract

Biharmonic Lagrangian surfaces of constant mean curvature in complex space forms are classified. A further important point is that new examples of marginally trapped biharmonic Lagrangian surfaces in an indefinite complex Euclidean plane are obtained. This fact suggests that Chen and Ishikawa's classification of marginally trapped biharmonic surfaces [6] is not complete.
