Weyl groupoids of rank two and continued fractions

Michael Cuntz and István Heckenberger

Vol. 3 (2009), No. 3, 317–340
Abstract

We present a relationship between continued fractions and Weyl groupoids of Cartan schemes of rank two. This allows one to decide easily if a given Cartan scheme of rank two admits a finite root system. We obtain obstructions and sharp bounds for the entries of the Cartan matrices.
