Coxeter groups are groups generated by reflections, and they play important roles in algebra, combinatorics and geometry. We will discuss some history of these groups and introduce several key examples, before describing some results on the large-scale geometry of right-angled Coxeter groups. This is joint work with Pallavi Dani (Louisiana State University).
