Given an indefinite binary quaternionic Hermitian form f with coefficients in a maximal order of a definite quaternion algebra over Q, we give a precise asymptotic equivalent to the number of nonequivalent representations, satisfying some congruence properties, of the rational integers with absolute value at most s by f , as s tends to +∞. We compute the volumes of hyperbolic 5-manifolds constructed by quaternions using Eisenstein series. In the Appendix, V. Emery computes these volumes using… 

On the arithmetic of crossratios and generalised Mertens' formulas

We develop the relation between hyperbolic geometry and arithmetic equidistribution problems that arises from the action of arithmetic groups on real hyperbolic spaces, especially in dimension up to

Counting and equidistribution in quaternionic Heisenberg groups

Abstract We develop the relationship between quaternionic hyperbolic geometry and arithmetic counting or equidistribution applications, that arises from the action of arithmetic groups on

Logarithm laws for strong unstable foliations in negative curvature and non-Archimedian Diophantine approximation

Given for instance a finite volume negatively curved Riemannian manifold $M$, we give a precise relation between the logarithmic growth rates of the excursions into cusps neighborhoods of the strong

Counting arcs in negative curvature

Let M be a complete Riemannian manifold with negative curvature, and let C_-, C_+ be two properly immersed locally convex subsets of M. We survey the asymptotic behaviour of the number of common

Quaternionic hyperbolic lattices of minimal covolume

On the minima of positive definite binary hamiltonian forms

Let $A$ be a definite quaternion algebra over $\mathbb Q$, with discriminant $D_A$, and $O$ a maximal order of $A$. We show that the minimum of the positive definite hamiltonian binary forms over $O$

Integral binary Hamiltonian forms and their waterworlds

We give a graphical theory of integral indefinite binary Hamiltonian forms $f$ analogous to the one by Conway for binary quadratic forms and the one of Bestvina-Savin for binary Hermitian forms.

Quaternionic determinants

The classical matrix groups are of fundamental importance in many parts of geometry and algebra. Some of them, like Sp.n/, are most conceptually defined as groups of quaternionic matrices. But, the

Describing the geometric theory of discrete groups and the associated tesselations of the underlying space, this work also develops the theory of Mobius transformations in n-dimensional Euclidean
