Regular Packings of PG (3,q)

T. Penttila, B. William
1998 European journal of combinatorics (Print)  
Two regular packings of PG(3, q) are constructed whenever q ≡ 2 (mod 3), with each packing admitting a cyclic group of order q 2 +q + 1 acting regularly on the regular spreads in the packing.  ...  The resulting families of translation planes of order q 4 include the Lorimer-Rahilly and Johnson-Walker planes of order 16.  ...  Now G acts faithfully on PG(3, q)/P or on π (as G S contains no nontrivial central collineations), so G ∼ =Ḡ ≤ PG L(3, q): letr be the resulting image in PG L(3, q) of r .  ...

Group theoretic characterizations of Buekenhout–Metz unitals in $\mathop{\mathrm{PG}}(2,q^{2})$

Giorgio Donati, Nicola Durante
2010 Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics  
Let G be the group of projectivities stabilizing a unital U in PG(2, q 2 ) and let A, B be two distinct points of U.  ...  In this paper we prove that, if G has an elation group of order q with center A and a group of projectivities stabilizing both A and B of order a divisor of q − 1 greater than 2( √ q − 1), then U is an  ...  Next we recall that a central collineation of PG(2, q 2 ) is a collineation α fixing every point of a line (the axis of α) and fixing every line through a point C (the center of α).  ...

The (56, 11, 2) design of Hall, Lane, and Wales

W Jónsson
1973 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
The hint for this construction comes from the remark in [3] that the points of D can be looked upon as a set of ovoids in the projective plane PG(2,4) upon which PSL(3, 4) acts.  ...  Using the representation of D derived from S" it is possible to compute that D has a group of collineations which is isomorphic to a subgroup of index 3 in the group of all collineations and correlations  ...  (3, 4) extended by an element of order 2 which in a suitable coordinate system of PG (2, 4) corresponds to a field automorfihism of GF(4).  ...

Uniform Hyperplanes of Finite Dual Polar Spaces of Rank 3

A. Pasini, S. Shpectorov
2001 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
We say that a hyperplane H of 2 is locally singular (respectively, quadrangular or ovoidal) if H & Q is the perp of a point (resp. a subquadrangle or an ovoid) of Q for every quad Q of 2.  ...  Let 2 be a finite thick dual polar space of rank 3.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors thank Ernest Shult for having pointed out a mistake in an earlier version of this paper and for having provided them with Proposition 2.8 and its proof.  ...

Classification of 8-dimensional rank two commutative semifields [article]

Michel Lavrauw, Morgan Rodgers
2016 arXiv   pre-print
This is done using computational methods utilizing the connection to linear sets in PG(2,q^4).  ...  The implications of these results are detailed for other geometric structures such as semifield flocks, ovoids of parabolic quadrics, and eggs.  ...  An ovoid O in Q(4, s) is a translation ovoid if there is a point p ∈ O and a group G of collineations of Q(4, s) stabilizing O, fixing p, and acting regularly on the points of O \{p}.  ...
