Cofinite hyperbolic Coxeter groups, minimal growth rate and Pisot numbers

Ruth Kellerhals

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 1001–1025
Abstract

By a result of R Meyerhoff, it is known that among all cusped hyperbolic 3–orbifolds the quotient of 3 by the tetrahedral Coxeter group (3,3,6) has minimal volume. We prove that the group (3,3,6) has smallest growth rate among all non-cocompact cofinite hyperbolic Coxeter groups, and that it is as such unique. This result extends to three dimensions some work of W Floyd who showed that the Coxeter triangle group (3,) has minimal growth rate among all non-cocompact cofinite planar hyperbolic Coxeter groups. In contrast to Floyd’s result, the growth rate of the tetrahedral group (3,3,6) is not a Pisot number.
