It is known that if A is a self-dual lattice in R", then min {u-u | u e A, u # 0} < (M/8) + 1. If equality holds the lattice is called extremal. In this paper we find all the extremal lattices: there are unique lattices in dimensions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 15, 23, 24 and no others.

We show that a specific even unimodular lattice of dimension 80, first investigated by Schulze-Pillot and others, is extremal (i.e., the minimal nonzero norm is 8). This is the third known extremal

This paper shows that the only self dual lattices in R, R2, R3  are rotations of Z , Z×Z and Z×Z×Z.
The Poincaré Upper Half-Plane
In Chap. 2, we considered a model for elliptic geometry, in which any two geodesics intersect, so that there are no parallels. Now we want to investigate a model for hyperbolic geometry, in which
