Assume that [rho], [sigma], [tau] satisfy the conditions [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] (the identity matrix) and [I.sub.2][I.sub.3] is a unipotent element. We call the group generated by [I.sub.1], [I.sub.2] and [I.sub.3] a complex hyperbolic triangle group of type (n,n, [infinity]; k) and denote it by [GAMMA](n,n, [infinity]; k).
of Oregon) acknowledge that much has already been written about the theory of unipotent elements in simple algebraic groups over algebraically closed or finite fields, and nilpoint elements in the corresponding simple Lie algebras.
