All Fuchsian Schottky groups are classical Schottky groups

Jack Button

Abstract. Not all Schottky groups of Moebius transformations are classical Schottky groups. In this paper we show that all Fuchsian Schottky groups are classical Schottky groups, but not necessarily on the same set of generators.

Keywords. Moebius transformation, Fuchsian group, Schottky group
