[en] We prove the existence of a unique maximal surface in an anti-de Sitter (AdS) convex Globally Hyperbolic Maximal (GHM) manifold with particles (i.e. with conical singularities along timelike lines) for cone-angles less than $\pi$. We reinterpret this result in terms of Teichm\"uller theory, and prove the existence of a unique minimal Lagrangian diffeomorphism isotopic to the identity between two hyperbolic structures with conical singularities of the same angles on a closed surface with marked points.
