The classification of involutions and symmetric spaces of modular groups

Marc Besson and Jennifer Schaefer

DOI: 10.2140/involve.2019.12.565
Abstract

The involutions and the symmetric spaces associated to the family of modular groups of order 2m are explored. We begin by analyzing the structure of the automorphism group and by establishing which automorphisms are involutions. We conclude by calculating the fixed-point group and symmetric spaces determined by each involution.
