The transition constant for arithmetic hyperbolic reflection groupsAbstract: The transition constant was introduced in our 1981 paper and denoted as N(14). It is equal to the maximal degree of the ground fields of Varithmetic connected edge graphs with 4 vertices and of the minimality 14. This constant is fundamental since if the degree of the ground field of an arithmetic hyperbolic reflection group is greater than N(14), then the field comes from very special plane reflection groups. In our recent paper (see also arXiv:0708.3991), we claimed its upper bound 56. Using similar but more difficult considerations, here we improve this bound. These results could be important for further classification.
