North-Holland Texts in Advanced Mathematics: Introduction to Finite Geometries focuses on the advancements in finite geometries, including mapping and combinatorics. The manuscript first offers information on the basic concepts on finite geometries and Galois geometries. Discussions focus on linear mapping of a given quadrangle onto another given... more...

How many objects of a given shape and size can be packed into a large box of fixed volume? Can one plant n trees in an orchard, not all along the same line, so that every line determined by two trees will pass through a third? These questions, raised by Hilbert and Sylvester roughly one hundred years ago, have generated a lot of interest among professional... more...

Recent developments in all aspects of combinatorial and incidence geometry are covered in this volume, including their links with the foundations of geometry, graph theory and algebraic structures, and the applications to coding theory and computer science. Topics covered include Galois geometries, blocking sets, affine and projective planes, incidence... more...

This monograph integrates unitary symmetry and combinatorics, showing in great detail how the coupling of angular momenta in quantum mechanics is related to binary trees, trivalent trees, cubic graphs, MacMahon's master theorem, and other basic combinatorial concepts. A comprehensive theory of recoupling matrices for quantum angular momentum is... more...

A q-clan with q a power of 2 is equivalent to a certain generalized quadrangle with a family of subquadrangles each associated with an oval in the Desarguesian plane of order 2. It is also equivalent to a flock of a quadratic cone, and hence to a line-spread of 3-dimensional projective space and thus to a translation plane, and more. These geometric... more...

Translation generalized quadrangles play a key role in the theory of generalized quadrangles, comparable to the role of translation planes in the theory of projective and affine planes. The notion of translation generalized quadrangle is a local analogue of the more global “Moufang Condition”, a topic of great interest, also due to the... more...

This volume is the proceedings of a conference on Finite Geometries, Groups, and Computation that took place on September 4-9, 2004, at Pingree Park, Colorado (a campus of Colorado State University). Not accidentally, the conference coincided with the 60 th birthday of William Kantor, and the topics relate to his major research areas. Participants... more...

Interest in combinatorial techniques has been greatly enhanced by the applications they may offer in connection with computer technology. The 38 papers in this volume survey the state of the art and report on recent results in Combinatorial Geometries and their applications. Contributors: V. Abatangelo, L. Beneteau, W. Benz, A. Beutelspacher, A. Bichara,... more...
