will speak on

Primitive generalised quadrangles

at 12 noon Tuesday 25th of May in MLR2

Abstract: A generalised quadrangle is an incidence structure of points and lines such that the bipartite incidence graph has diameter 4 and girth 8. The classical examples are the low dimensional polar spaces associated with the classical groups PSp(4,q), PSU(4,q) and PSU(5,q). In this talk I will discuss recent work with John Bamberg, Joy Morris, Gordon Royle and Pablo Spiga aimed at characterising the classical examples in terms of the action of their automorphism group on points and lines.
