Project description

The further development of the theory of Moufang sets, i.e., a certain class of doubly transitive groups introduced by Jacques Tits. On the one hand, the study of special Moufang sets and the search for alternative conditions. On the other hand, the study of known examples of Moufang sets arising from linear algebraic groups, using geometrical and algebraic methods.
