This ebook presents a self-contained advent to diagram geometry.  Tight connections with crew concept are proven. It treats skinny geometries (related to Coxeter teams) and thick constructions from a diagrammatic point of view. Projective and affine geometry are major examples.  Polar geometry is influenced by way of polarities on diagram geometries and the entire type of these polar geometries whose projective planes are Desarguesian is given. It differs from Tits' complete remedy in that it makes use of Veldkamp's embeddings. The booklet intends to be a uncomplicated reference when you learn diagram geometry.  staff theorists will locate examples of using diagram geometry.  gentle on matroid conception is shed from the viewpoint of geometry with linear diagrams.  these drawn to Coxeter teams and people drawn to constructions will locate short yet self-contained introductions into those themes from the diagrammatic perspective.  Graph theorists will locate many hugely normal graphs. The textual content is written so graduate scholars could be capable of persist with the arguments without having recourse to additional literature. a robust aspect of the booklet is the density of examples.

Clearly, the implication is trivial if |I | ≤ 2, so assume |I | ≥ 3. Let {i, j, k} ⊆ I be of size three. 9(iv), we have (Gi Gk ) ∩ (Gj Gk ) = G{i,j } Gk . 9(ii), this implies that G is transitive on the set of flags of type {i, j, k}. Fix i ∈ I . We will consider the action of Gi on Γ (Gi , (G{i,j } )j ∈I \{i} ). 9(iv) it suffices to verify that, for each non-empty J ⊆ I \ {i} and k ∈ I \ (J ∪ {i}), the equality (G{j,i} G{k,i} ) = GJ ∪{i} G{k,i} j ∈J holds. But this follows from (G{j,i} G{k,i} ) ⊆ j ∈J (Gj Gk ) ∩ Gi = (GJ ∪{i} Gk ) ∩ Gi = GJ ∪{i} G{k,i} j ∈J ∪{i} where the first equality is due to surjectivity of φJ ∪{i} .

Iii) As φ(G) is contained in Aut(Γ ), it preserves types. These observations lead to the following construction of incidence systems from groups. 3 Let (Gi )i∈I be a system of subgroups in G. The coset incidence system of G over (Gi )i∈I , denoted Γ (G, (Gi )i∈I ), is the incidence system over I , whose elements of type i are the cosets of Gi in G and in which aGi and bGj are incident if and only if aGi ∩ bGj = ∅. The group Gi is called the standard parabolic subgroup of G of type i (with respect to Γ (G, (Gi )i∈I )).

Prove that G2 G1 ∩ G3 G1 = (G2 ∩ G3 )G1 holds if and only if (G2 ∩ G1 )(G3 ∩ G1 ) = (G2 G3 ) ∩ G1 . 25 Consider the dihedral group G of order 12, generated by two involutions r1 and r2 , so that r12 = r22 = (r1 r2 )6 = 1. Show that the incidence system Γ (G, (G1 , G2 )) where G1 = r1 and G2 = r2 , is the hexagon geometry over [2], having six elements of each type. 26 Consider G = Sym4 together with the subgroups G1 = (1, 2, 3) and G3 = (1, 3, 2, 4) . (a) Let G1 = (1, 4) . Show that the coset incidence system Γ (G, (G1 , G2 , G3 )) is the cube geometry.
