## Abstract

In this paper we study normal subgroups of Kleinian groups as well as discrepancy groups (d-groups), that are Kleinian groups for which the exponent of convergence is strictly less than the Hausdorff dimension of the limit set. We show that the limit set of a d-group always contains a range of fractal subsets, each containing the set of radial limit points and having Hausdorff dimension strictly less than the Hausdorff dimension of the whole limit set. We then consider normal subgroups G of an arbitrary non-elementary Kleiman group H, and show that the exponent of convergence of G is bounded from below by half of the exponent of convergene of H. Finally, we give a discussion of various examples of d-groups.
