This chapter studies Riemann surface foliations with tame singular points. It shows that the hyperbolic entropy of a Brody hyperbolic foliation by Riemann surfaces with linearizable isolated singularities on a compact complex surface is finite. The chapter then proves the finiteness of the entropy in the local setting near a singular point in any dimension, using a division of a neighborhood of a singular point into adapted cells. Next, the chapter estimates the modulus of continuity for the Poincaré metric along the leaves of the foliation, using notion of conformally (R,δ‎)-close maps. The estimate holds for foliations on manifolds of higher dimension.

Keywords:   entropy, Riemann surfaces, Riemann surface foliations, tame singular points, hyperbolic entropy, Brody hyperbolic foliation, compact complex surface, finiteness, Poincaré metric
