I read about how Hecke groups are a particular generalisation of the modular group, generalising one of the generators of the modular group to $z\mapsto z + \lambda$. Have people studied generalisations of the other generator of the modular group, perhaps generalising to $z \mapsto \dfrac{-1}{z^n}$ ?

    $\begingroup$ What is your proposed inverse of $z \mapsto \dfrac{-1}{z^n}$? $\endgroup$ – user641 Feb 25 '11 at 17:55
  • $\begingroup$ It would be $z \mapsto \sqrt[n]{\dfrac{-1}{z}}$, but the roots in the upper-half plane would all have to be identified. $\endgroup$ – user7485 Feb 25 '11 at 22:36
