Project description

From m-systems one can construct incidence geometries in particular, by using generalised linear representation. It is already known that in certain cases this method leads to semipartial geometries, and it is likely that in other similar cases, weaker properties can be found. We also endeavour to obtain more results on existence and non-existence of m-systems in some specific polar spaces.
