We prove an Erdős-Ko-Rado-type theorem for intersecting k-chains of subspaces of a finite vector space. This is the q-generalization of earlier results of Erdős, Seress and Székely for intersecting k-chains of subsets of an underlying set. The proof hinges on the author's proper generalization of the shift technique from extremal set theory to finite vector spaces, which uses a linear map to define the generalized shift operation. The theorem is the following. For c = 0, 1, consider k-chains ofdoi:10.1017/s0963548399004010 fatcat:ueg6dfgjrzdbvknaybhl2zawyu
