Project description

The aim of the project is to take the axioms of Mazzocca-Melone describing Veronese varieties as a solid base for a functor mapping classical Tits-buildings to other classical or exceptional Tits-buildings of higher rank. This we, we lay the foundations for a systematic treatment of representations of Tits-buildings.
