## Tilings of the hyperbolic plane

##### Abstract:

We will discuss how one can tile the hyperbolic plane with various polygons. We will focus on the tiling with the smallest possible tile, the (2,3,7)-triangle. The reflexion group associated to it turns out to have fundamental importance in the theory of Hurwitz surfaces.
