and hypercube. Their symmetry groups are the symmetric group Sn+1 and the hyperoctahedral group Hn respectively. In dimension n = 4 there are three additional regular polytopes, and all their symmetry groups are ﬁnite reﬂection groups [23], [4].

Chapter 3 discusses the polynomial invariants of finite reflection groups, and the first part ends with a description of the affine Weyl groups and the way they arise in Lie theory.

The second part (which is logically independent of, but motivated by, the first) starts. In mathematics, a Coxeter group, named after H. Coxeter, is an abstract group that admits a formal description in terms of reflections (or kaleidoscopic mirrors).Indeed, the finite Coxeter groups are precisely the finite Euclidean reflection groups; the symmetry groups of regular polyhedra are an example.

However, not all Coxeter groups are finite, and not all can be described in terms. The book explains a theorem of Moussong that demonstrates that a polyhedral metric on this cell complex is nonpositively curved, meaning that Coxeter groups are "CAT(0) groups." The book describes the reflection group trick, one of the most potent sources of examples of aspherical manifolds.

He assumes that the reader has a good knowledge of algebra, but otherwise the book is self contained. The first part is devoted to establishing concrete examples; the author begins by developing the most important facts about finite reflection groups and related geometry, and showing that such groups have a Coxeter representation.

Groups generated by reflections are ubiquitous in mathematics, and there are classical examples of reflection groups in spherical, Euclidean, and hyperbolic geometry. Any Coxeter group can be realized as a group generated by reflection on a certain contractible cell complex, and this complex is the principal subject of this book.

Coxeter. permutation representations for Coxeter groups uses the re ection represen-tation and is concerned with root systems, in Chapter 4, a key component of the automaticity result. The role of Coxeter groups in other parts of mathe-matics comes to play in Chapters 6 on Weyl groups and 8 on buildings.

It was a pleasure working with the class. This chapter is of an auxiliary nature and contains the modicum of the theory of finite reflection groups and Coxeter groups which we need for a systematic development of the theory of Coxeter.

The geometric concepts associated with the resulting chamber system (called the Coxeter complex of W) form the language of the theory of Coxeter matroids.
