Abstract : In this paper, we study surfaces in $\mathbb E^3$ whose Gauss map $G$ satisfies the equation $\square G=f(G+C)$ for a smooth function $f$ and a constant vector $C$, where $\square$ stands for the Cheng-Yau operator. We focus on surfaces with constant Gaussian curvature, constant mean curvature and constant principal curvature with such a property. We obtain some classification and characterization theorems for these kinds of surfaces. Finally, we give a characterization of surfaces whose Gauss map $G$ satisfies the equation $\square G=\lambda(G+C)$ for a constant $\lambda$ and a constant vector $C$.
Keywords : Gauss map, $\square$-pointwise 1-type, Cheng-Yau operator
