Rationally Connected Foliations on Surfaces
In this short note we study foliations on surfaces with rationally connected leaves. Our main result is that on a surface there exists a polarisation such that the Harder-Narasimhan filtration of the tangent bundle with respect to this polarisation yields the maximal rationally connected quotient of the surface.
