Similarity Submodules and Root Systems in Four Dimensions
Lattices and $\ZZ$-modules in Euclidean space possess an infinitude of subsets that are images of the original set under similarity transformation. We classify such self-similar images according to their indices for certain 4D examples that are related to 4D root systems, both crystallographic and non-crystallographic. We encapsulate their statistics in terms of Dirichlet series generating functions and derive some of their asymptotic properties.

On the Existence of Similar Sublattices
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 $\Lambda$?

Asymptotic Formulae for the Lattice Point Enumerator
Let $M$ be a convex body such that the boundary has positive curvature. Then by a well developed theory dating back to Landau and Hlawka for large $\lambda$ the number of lattice points in $\lambda M$ is given by $G(\lambda M) =V(\lambda M) + O(\lambda^{d-1-\varepsilon (d)})$ for some positive $\varepsilon(d)$. Here we give for general convex bodies the weaker estimate \[ \left| G(\lambda M) -V(\lambda M) \right | \le \frac{1}{2} S_{\Z^d}(M) \lambda^{d-1}+o(\lambda^{d-1}) \] where $S_{\Z^d}(M)$ denotes the lattice surface area of $M$. The term $S_{\Z^d}(M)$ is optimal for all convex bodies and $o(\lambda^{d-1})$ cannot be improved in general. We prove that the same estimate even holds if we allow small deformations of $M$. Further we deal with families $\{P_\lambda\}$ of convex bodies where the only condition is that the inradius tends to infinity. Here we have \[ \left| G(P_\lambda)-V(P_\lambda) \right| \le dV(P_\lambda,K;1)+o \bigl( S(P_\lambda) \bigr) \] where the convex body $K$ satisfies some simple condition, $V(P_\lambda,K;1)$ is some mixed volume and $S(P_\lambda)$ is the surface area of $P_\lambda$.
