Abstract. We provide simpler proofs of several boundedness theorems, contained
in in articles [2], [3], for log surfaces of general type with semi log canonical sin­
gularities. At the same time, we make these proofs effective, with explicit upper
0 Introduction
In this work, we present several effective boundedness results for various in­
variants of singular surfaces. The most important application of these results
is the existence of the moduli space of semi­log canonical surfaces of gen­
eral type. The construction of this moduli space was started in [7], and the
boundedness provides the final necessary step to complete it.
This paper was written in 1995 for a planned volume on moduli of surfaces
of general type, which has not yet been published. Therefore, with the editors'
consent, we are publishing the paper independently.
Time, meanwhile, was not standing still, and there have been new develop­
ments in the field, none of which supersede the results of our work. The most
