Abstract: Hyperbolic structures are examples of real projective structures if we consider Klein's model. This talk was motivated by the following question: Under what conditions can one take the hyperbolic structure on a 3-dimensional hyperbolic reflection orbifold and deform it to a real projective structure? We will explain the numerical results in the case of cubes and dodecahedra.
