  •  The reflection group of a regular tetrahedron

  •  C304 Wells Hall

I will explain how the group of affine orthogonal transformations generated by the reflections into the four facets of a regular tetrahedron and its symmetries appears as a discrete group of motions of the 9-dimensional hyperbolic space, as the full group of automorphisms of some algebraic surfaces and as a lattice in a projective linear group over the 3-adic numbers.
