Beschreibung

This book offers a clear and comprehensible introduction to incidence geometry, including such topics as projective and affine geometry and the theory of buildings and polar spaces. More than 200 figures make even complicated proofs accessible to the reader.

Incidence geometry is a central part of modern mathematics that has an impressive tradition. The main topics of incidence geometry are projective and affine geometry and, in more recent times, the theory of buildings and polar spaces.

Embedded into the modern view of diagram geometry, projective and affine geometry including the fundamental theorems, polar geometry including the Theorem of Buekenhout-Shult and the classification of quadratic sets are presented in this volume. Incidence geometry is developed along the lines of the fascinating work of Jacques Tits and Francis Buekenhout.

The book is a clear and comprehensible introduction into a wonderful piece of mathematics. More than 200 figures make even complicated proofs accessible to the reader.



The book is a reference in which a lot of classical material is presented in most readable and accessible way

Valuable contribution to the literature about a wonderful piece of mathematics

Can be used by students, researchers and lecturers
