Format: Paperback
This book collects 12 articles by Coxeter, already published in various mathematics technical journal but would be quite tedious to collect for one's pleasure. Each explains fascinating connections between exceptional discrete groups, polyhedra, graphs, sphere packings, projective spaces. All carry the particular favour of HSM Coxeter mathematics with his love of polyhedra and of their geometry. Starting points are often elementary but conclusions and connections are worthwile aven for today mathematics. I recommend it for graduates in mathematics, especially those interested in group theory, discrete/finite geometry, non-euclidean geometry as a very inspiring book giving a sense of unity in those parts of mathematics.
