01-JAN-96 – 31-DEC-99
Characterizations of the by Tits introduced Moufang generalized polygons. Developping geometric methods to show algebraic results. Classification of generalized polygons satisfying c ertain conditions. Investigation of geometric properties of flocks of quadratic cones in three dimensions and generalizations, including the partial flocks in higher dimensions. Investigation of the g eometric objects arising from flocks such as arcs, caps, quadrangles and projective planes.
