Project: Generalized polygons. Near polygons. (Semi)partial geometries and substructures of Galois spaces.

project duration
01-JAN-98 – 31-DEC-00
Characterizations of the by Tits introduced Moufang polygons and of their generalization, the near polygons. Embeddings of generalized polygons and near polygons in projective spaces. Constructions and characterizations of (semi)partial geometries and investigation of the corresponding strongly regular graphs. Veroneseans of Hermitian varieties, and arcs and caps in Galois spaces. The many interconnections between these objects will be exploited, e.g. the theory of the flocks which form an important link between polygons, arcs and caps.
