made a study of honeycombs whose cells are equal regular polytopes in spaces of positive, zero, and negative curvature. The spherical and Euclidean honeycombs had already been described by Schlaf li (1855), but the only earlier mention of the hyperbolic honeycombs was when Stringham (1880, pp. 7, 12, and errata) discarded them as "imaginary figures", or, for the two-dimensional case, when Klein (1879) used them in his work on automorphic functions. Interest in them was revived by Sommerville…

Visualizing hyperbolic honeycombs
ABSTRACT We explore visual representations of tilings corresponding to Schläfli symbols. In three dimensions, we call these tilings ‘honeycombs’. Schläfli symbols encode, in a very efficient way,
Polyhedra and packings from hyperbolic honeycombs
TLDR
More than 80 embeddings of 2D hyperbolic honeycombs in Euclidean 3 space are derived, forming 3-periodic infinite polyhedra with cubic symmetry, including 10 infinite “deltahedra,” with equilateral triangular faces, 6 of which were previously unknown and some of which can be described as packings of Platonic deltahedra.
Horoball packings to the totally asymptotic regular simplex in the hyperbolic n-space
In Szirmai (Acta Mathematica Hungarica 136/1-2:39–55, 2012) we generalized the notion of simplicial density function for horoballs in the extended hyperbolic space $${\overline{\mathbf{H}}^3}$$,
Horoball packings related to the 4-dimensional hyperbolic 24 cell honeycomb {3,4,3,4}
In this paper we study the horoball packings related to the hyperbolic 24 cell honeycomb by Coxeter-Schläfli symbol {3, 4, 3, 4} in the extended hyperbolic 4-spaceH where we allow horoballs in

In 1883 Poincaré [13] recognized that the discrete subgroups of PSL(2, C) could be extended from their natural action on the complex plane to acting on hyperbolic 3-space and he attempted to analyze
Horoball packings and their densities by generalized simplicial density function in the hyperbolic space
The aim of this paper is to determine the locally densest horoball packing arrangements and their densities with respect to fully asymptotic tetrahedra with at least one plane of symmetry in
Regular Tessellation Link Complements
TLDR
This work completes the classification of all principal congruence link complements given by Baker and Reid for the cases of discriminant D = −3 and D =−4 and proves that a regular tessellation has to be of infinite volume if its fundamental group is generated by peripheral curves only.
Growth series of some hyperbolic graphs and Salem numbers
Extending the analogous result of Cannon and Wagreich for the fundamental groups of surfaces, we show that, for the l-regular graphs Xl,m associated to regular tessellations of hyperbolic plane by
Embedding of All Regular Tilings and Star-honeycombs Embedding of All Regular Tilings and Star-honeycombs Embedding of All Regular Tilings and Star-honeycombs
We review the regular tilings of d-sphere, Euclidean d-space, hyperbolic d-space and Coxeter's regular hyperbolic honeycombs (with innnite or star-shaped cells or vertex gures) with respect of
