In 1970, E.M. Andreev gave a full description of 3-dimensional compact hyperbolic polyhedra with dihedral angles submultiples of pi. We call them hyperbolic Coxeter polyhedra. More precisely, given a combinatorial polyhedron C with assigned dihedral angles, Andreev’s theorem provides necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a hyperbolic Coxeter polyhedron realizing C. Since hyperbolic geometry arises naturally as sub-geometry of real projective geometry, we can ask an analogous question for compact real projective Coxeter polyhedra. In this talk, I’ll give a partial answer to this question. This is a joint work with Suhyoung Choi.
