 Abstract
 An Andre embedding is a representation of a pointline geometry S with approximately s(2) points on a line in a planar space with approximately s points per line, but such that the lines of S are contained in planes of the planar space. An example is the Andre representation (also sometimes called the BoseBruck representation) of an affine translation plane of order q(2) (with kernel of order at least q) in 4dimensional affine space AG(4, q), using a line spread at infinity. In this paper, we classify all Andre embeddings of affine planes of order q(2) in PG(4, q), q > 2, and obtain, besides the natural extension to PG(4, q) of the above example, two other related constructions. We also consider Andre embeddings of affine planes of order q(2) in PG(d, q), with d > 4 and q > 2.
