Abstract: Let $\Gamma$ be a geometrically finite discrete group of isometries of hyperbolic space $\mathcal{H}_{\mathbb{F}}^n$, where $\mathbb{F}= \mathbb{R}, \mathbb{C}, \mathbb{H}$ or $\mathbb{O}$ (in which case $n=2$). We prove that the critical exponent of $\Gamma$ equals the Hausdorff dimension of the limit sets $\Lambda(\Gamma)$ and that the smallest eigenvalue of the Laplacian acting on square integrable functions is a quadratic function of either of them (when they are sufficiently large). A generalization of Hopf ergodicity theorem for the geodesic flow with respect to the Bowen-Margulis measure is also proven.
