The Calabi–Yau problem for Riemann surfaces with finite genus and countably many ends

In this paper, we show that if $R$ is a compact Riemann surface and $M=R\setminus\bigcup_i D_i$ is a domain in $R$ whose complement is a union of countably many pairwise disjoint smoothly bounded closed discs, $D_i$, then there is a complete conformal minimal immersion $X\colon M\to\mathbb{R}^3$, extending to a continuous map $X\colon \overline M\to\mathbb{R}^3$, such that $X(bM)=\bigcup_i X(bD_i)$ is a union of pairwise disjoint Jordan curves. In particular, $M$ is the complex structure of a complete bounded minimal surface in $\mathbb{R}^3$. This extends a recent result for finite bordered Riemann surfaces.
