Abstract

The number lambda(q) = 2cos pi/q, q is an element of N, q >= 3, appears in the study of Hecke groups which are Fuchsian groups, and in the study of regular polyhedra. There are many results about the minimal polynomial of this algebraic number. Here we obtain the minimal polynomial of this number by means of the better known Chebycheff polynomials for odd q and give some of their properties.
