 3. Discrete Subgroups of Euclidean Group
The considered groups are discrete, so in every such group we can choose a translation whose vector is minimal.
Their translation subgroup is generated by two independent translations, and this class contains 17 non-isomorphic groups.
The classification of the discrete subgroups mentioned will be considered in the next three chapters.

When V is an induced representation from some subgroup K to G, which we realize geometrically as the space of functions on G/K, the corresponding algebra is essentially what is known as the Hecke algebra H(G;K).
In this case the Hecke algebra is almost abelian (in fact its large abelian subgroup is itself often called Hecke algebra),and its basis is indexed by a slight extension of the Weyl group..
An element of the principal series corresponds to the induced representation from the upper-triangular subgroup of the character which assigns to an upper diagonal matrix with a, 1/a on the diagonal the number x(a), where x is a character on the real line.

In Small discrete subgroups and the Plancherel theorem we consider discrete subgroups of semisimple Lie groups of higher rank.
We define a sort of convex cocompactness of discrete subgroups with respect to a given class of parabolic subgroups.
Under additional smallness hypotheses we study the Plancherel decomposition of the Hilbert space of square integrable functions on the quotient of the semisimple group by the discrete subgroup.

As subgroups of the isometry group of the set of vertices of a regular n-gon they are different: the reflections in one subgroup all have two fixed points, while none in the other subgroup has (the rotations of both are the same).
As subgroups of the isometry group of Z they are different: the reflections in one subgroup all have a fixed point, the mirrors are at the integers, while none in the other subgroup has, the mirrors are in between (the translations of both are the same: by even numbers).

Since the subgroup is discrete, the topology is locally the same as SO(3), that is, it's another manifold.
Since the subgroup is _not_ normal, the new space is not a group.
The subgroup intended is then the image of this representation (then unique, up to conjugacy).

More generally, a lattice Γ in a Lie group G is a discrete subgroup, such that G/Γ is of finite measure, for the measure on it inherited from Haar measure on G (left-invariant, or right-invariant - the definition is independent of that choice).
The supremum is given by the least common multiple and the infimum by the greatest common divisor.
The supremum is given by the subgroup generated by the union of the groups and the infimum is given by the intersection.

 Spiral Tilings
We can summarize this conclusion by saying that the group G of symmetries of a spiral tiling must be a discrete subgroup of multiplication of nonzero complex numbers.
If we choose a reference point 1 in some tile containing that point, the images of that point 1*G=G give one reference point in each tile, so the members of G are in one-to-one correspondence with the tiles of the spiral tiling.
So if G is the set of symmetries of a spiral tiling, log(G) is a discrete subgroup of the additive complex numbers.

Abstract: Let $\Gamma$ be a discrete group acting on a compact manifold $X$, let $V$ be a $\Gamma$-equivariant Hermitian vector bundle over $X$, and let $D$ be a first-order elliptic self-adjoint $\Gamma$-equivariant differential operator acting on sections of $V$.
In addition, if equality occurs, then the leaf space of the foliation is isometric to the space of orbits of a discrete subgroup of O(q) acting on the standard q-sphere of constant curvature k.
We also prove a result about bundle-like metrics: on any Riemannian foliation with bundle-like metric, there exists another bundle-like metric for which the mean curvature is basic and the basic Laplacian for the new metric is the same as that of the original metric.

In joint work with Yehuda Shalom, we have proved Margulis' Normal Subgroup Theorem for any discrete subgroup $\Gamma$ of the automorphism group of a locally finite $A_2$-tilde building, $B$, provided that the quotient of $B$ by $\Gamma$ is compact.
The conclusion of the Normal Subgroup Theorem for a center-free group like this one is that any normal subgroup is either trivial or of finite index.
Curiously, in all these cases the full automorphism group of the building is itself discrete.

Its subgroup SL(2,ZZ) of 2 ×2 invertible integral matrices is the group of ``symmetries'' of the group ZZ of lattice points in IR is naturally of interest in number theory; and properties of SL(2,ZZ) are accessed most easily by using the fact that it is a discrete subgroup of SL(2,IR).
Thus the geometry of Riemann surfaces is tied up intimately with discrete subgroups of SL(2,IR).

A lattice is an infinite arrangement of points spaced with sufficient regularity that one can shift any point onto any other point by some symmetry of the arrangement.
More formally, a lattice can be defined as a discrete subgroup of a finite-dimensional vector space (the subgroup is often required not to lie within any subspace of the vector space, which can be expressed formally by saying that the quotient of the space by the lattice is compact).

 The Design of 2-Colour Wallpaper Patterns Using Methods Based on Chaotic Dynamics and Symmetry
E(2) is not the identity, then T is either a reflection, or a rotation or a translation or a glide reflection.
The user initially specifies the symmetry of the pattern (any discrete subgroup of E(2)), and the type of iteration (deterministic or iterated function system).
At this point it is customary to divide the lattice subgroups into five classes (oblique, rectangular, centered rectangular (or rhombic), square and hexagonal) and then classify the wallpaper groups according to the point groups that can occur for each lattice class.
