Felikson, Anna ; Tumarkin, Pavel

In: Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, 2010, vol. 362, p. 847-858.

We use the geometry of the Davis complex of a Coxeter group to investigate finite index reflection subgroups of Coxeter groups. The main result is the following: if $ G$ is an infinite indecomposable Coxeter group and $ H\subset G$ is a finite index reflection subgroup, then the rank of $ H$ is not less than the rank of $ G$. This generalizes earlier results of the authors (2004). We also... Plus

    Summary
    We use the geometry of the Davis complex of a Coxeter group to investigate finite index reflection subgroups of Coxeter groups. The main result is the following: if $ G$ is an infinite indecomposable Coxeter group and $ H\subset G$ is a finite index reflection subgroup, then the rank of $ H$ is not less than the rank of $ G$. This generalizes earlier results of the authors (2004). We also describe the relationship between the nerves of the group and the subgroup in the case of equal rank
