    Donald Coxeter infused enthusiasm, even passion, for mathematics in people of any age, any background, any profession, any walk of life. Enchanted by Euclidean geometry, he was interested in the beauty, the description, and the exploration of the world around us. His involvement in art and with artists earned him admiration and friends in the intellectual community all over the globe. Coxeter's devotion to polytopes and his interest in the theory of configurations live on in his students and followers. Coxeter groups arise in various subjects in applied mathematics, and they have a permanent place in some of the most demanding and fascinating branches of abstract mathematics, such as Lie algebras, algebraic groups, Chevalley groups, and Kac-Moody groups. This collection of articles by outstanding researchers and expositors is intended to capture the essence of the Coxeter legacy. It is a mixture of surveys, up-to-date information, history, storytelling, and personal memories; and it includes a rich variety of beautiful illustrations.

    To read more about Coxeter Groups see Coxeter Groups and Hopf Algebras .

    Readership

    Mathematicians, artists, model makers with a university degree, preferably in mathematics.
