Abstract

Partial answers are given to two questions. When does a lattice $\Lambda$ contain a sublattice $\Lambda'$ of index $N$ that is geometrically similar to $\Lambda$? When is the sublattice ``clean'', in the sense that the boundaries of the Voronoi cells for $\Lambda'$ do not intersect $\Lambda$?
