Grassmannians Of Classical Buildings, Hardback Book


Buildings are combinatorial constructions successfully exploited to study groups of various types.

The vertex set of a building can be naturally decomposed into subsets called Grassmannians.

The book contains both classical and more recent results on Grassmannians of buildings of classical types.

It gives a modern interpretation of some classical results from the geometry of linear groups.

The presented methods are applied to some geometric constructions non-related to buildings - Grassmannians of infinite-dimensional vector spaces and the sets of conjugate linear involutions.The book is self-contained and the requirement for the reader is a knowledge of basic algebra and graph theory.

This makes it very suitable for use in a course for graduate students.
