Let G be a finitely generated Fuchsian group of the first kind and let (g : m1, m2, …, mn) be its shortened signature. Beardon showed that almost every Dirichlet region for G has 12g + 4n − 6 sides. Points in ℍ corresponding to Dirichlet regions for G with fewer sides are called exceptional for G. We generalize previously established methods to show that, for any such G, its set of exceptional points is uncountable.
Advances in Geometry is a mathematical journal which publishes original research articles of excellent quality in the area of geometry. Geometry is a field of long-standing tradition and eminent importance. The study of space and spatial patterns is a major mathematical activity, and geometric ideas and the geometric language permeate all of mathematics.
