An interesting family of recurrences of order n ≥ 2, which are globally (n+3)-periodic was introduced by Coxeter in 1971. We prove a surprising property of this family: 'all' the possible geometrical behaviours that linear real (n+3)-periodic recurrences can have are present inside the Coxeter recurrences. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
