In mathematics, a Barlow surface is one of the complex surfaces introduced by Rebecca Barlow (1984, 1985). They are simply connected surfaces of general type with pg = 0. They are homeomorphic but not diffeomorphic to a projective plane blown up in 8 points; the Hodge diamond for the Barlow surfaces is:
