Discrete Coxeter groups

  title={Discrete Coxeter groups},
  author={Gye-Seon Lee and Ludovic Marquis},
Coxeter groups are a special class of groups generated by involutions. They play important roles in the various areas of mathematics. This survey particularly focuses on how one use Coxeter groups to construct interesting examples of discrete subgroups of Lie group.

The geometry and topology of Coxeter groups
These notes are intended as an introduction to the theory of Coxeter groups. They closely follow my talk in the Lectures on Modern Mathematics Series at the Mathematical Sciences Center in TsinghuaExpand
We investigate linear groups generated by reflections in the faces of a convex polyhedral cone and operating discretely on an open convex cone. These groups generalize the discrete groups of motionsExpand
On some convex cocompact groups in real hyperbolic space
We generalize to a wider class of hyperbolic groups a construction by Misha Kapovich yielding convex cocompact representations into real hyperbolic space.
Complete affine locally flat manifolds with a free fundamental group
Examples of free noncommutative subgroups of the affine group A(3), which act properly discontinuously on ℝ3, are constructed in the paper. These examples refute a conjecture of Milnor to the effectExpand
Proper actions of discrete groups of affine transformations
In the early 1980's Margulis startled the world by showing the existence of proper affine actions of free groups on 3-space, answering a provocative and suggestive question Milnor posed in 1977. InExpand
Around groups in Hilbert Geometry
This is survey about action of group on Hilbert geometry. It will be a chapter of the "Handbook of Hilbert geometry" edited by G. Besson, M. Troyanov and A. Papadopoulos.
Notes on right-angled Coxeter polyhedra in hyperbolic spaces
We show that (finite volume) right-angled Coxeter polyhedra may exist in hyperbolic spaces only in dimension at most 12. This is a slight improvement on a theorem of Potyagailo and Vinberg stated inExpand
Proper affine actions on semisimple Lie algebras
For any noncompact semisimple real Lie group $G$, we construct a group of affine transformations of its Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ whose linear part is Zariski-dense in $\operatorname{Ad} G$ andExpand
Infinitely many hyperbolic Coxeter groups through dimension 19
We prove the following: there are infinitely many finite-covolume (resp. cocompact) Coxeter groups acting on hyperbolic space H^n for every n < 20 (resp. n < 7). When n=7 or 8, they may be taken toExpand
Convex projective structures on Gromov-Thurston manifolds
We consider Gromov–Thurston examples of negatively curved n-manifolds which do not admit metrics of constant sectional curvature. We show that for each n ≥ 4 some of the Gromov–Thurston manifoldsExpand
