We describe string-theory and d = 11 supergravity solutions involving symmetric spaces of constant negative curvature. Many examples of non-supersymmetric string compactifications on hyperbolic spaces Hr of finite volume are given in terms of suitable cosets of the form Hr/?, where ? is a discrete group. We describe in some detail the cases of the non-compact hyperbolic spaces F2 and F3, representing the fundamental regions of H2 and H3 under SL(2,) and the Picard group, respectively. By…
