Noncommutative geometry of groups like $Γ_0(N)$    [PDF]

Jorge Plazas
We show that the Connes-Marcolli $GL_{2}$-system can be represented on the Big Picture, a combinatorial gadget introduced by Conway in order to understand various results about congruence subgroups pictorially. In this representation the time evolution of the system is implemented by Conway's distance between projective classes of commensurable lattices. We exploit these results in order to associate quantum statistical mechanical systems to congruence subgroups in a way appropriate for the study of monstrous moonshine.
