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

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
