Belolipetsky, M. (2004) 'On volumes of arithmetic quotients of SO(1, n).', Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa - Classe di Scienze., 3 (4). pp. 749-770.
We apply G. Prasad's volume formula for the arithmetic quotients of semi-simple groups and Bruhat-Tits theory to study the covolumes of arithmetic subgroups of SO(1,n). As a result we prove that for any even dimension n there exists a unique compact arithmetic hyperbolic n-orbifold of the smallest volume. We give a formula for the Euler-Poincare characteristic of the orbifolds and present an explicit description of their fundamental groups as the stabilizers of certain lattices in quadratic spaces. We also study hyperbolic 4-manifolds defined arithmetically and obtain a number theoretical characterization of the smallest compact arithmetic 4-manifold.
