Abstract
Consider a finite classical polar space of rank d >= 2 and an integer n with 0 < n < d. In this paper, it is proved that the set consisting of all subspaces of rank n that contain a given point is a largest Erdos-Ko-Rado set of subspaces of rank n of the polar space. We also show that there are no other Erdos-Ko-Rado sets of subspaces of rank n of the same size.
