By Reinhold Baer

Geared towards upper-level undergraduates and graduate scholars, this article establishes that projective geometry and linear algebra are primarily exact. The aiding proof includes theorems delivering an algebraic demonstration of yes geometric innovations. those specialize in the illustration of projective geometries through linear manifolds, of projectivities via semilinear variations, of collineations via linear alterations, and of dualities by way of semilinear varieties. those theorems result in a reconstruction of the geometry that constituted the discussion's place to begin, inside of algebraic buildings akin to the endomorphism ring of the underlying manifold or the whole linear group.
Restricted to subject matters of an algebraic nature, the textual content exhibits how a long way in simple terms algebraic equipment may possibly expand. It assumes just a familiarity with the elemental techniques and phrases of algebra. The tools of transfinite set concept often recur, and for readers unusual with this thought, the ideas and ideas seem in a unique appendix.

F ( x - y)]* = G(T’ - y’), + + + The independence of the three elements x’,y’,z’ is again a consequence of the independence of the three elements z,y,z. Thus we may apply (5) both on x,y,z and on x’,y’,z’. E - z)l* (FY)*) = [ G(z’ - y’) Gz’] n [ G ( d - z’) Gy’] = G(x’ - y’ - z’) ; and using this result we find similarly that + + + + + [F(y + + z)]* = ([Fy + Fz] n [ F ( x- y - z ) + F 4 ) * = [(FY)* + ( W * I n [ ( F ( z- y z))* + (W*I + Gz’] n [ G(x’ - + + y’ - z’) Gx’] = G(y’ 2’). But the three equations (Fx)* = Gx’, [ F ( x - y - z)]* = G(x’ - Y‘- z’), [ F ( y + z)]* = G(y’ z’) are the three defining equations of h(x,x‘,y Z ) which is uniquely determined by (1); and thus we have h(z,z’,y z ) =y’ Z’ which proves our claim in this first case.

2]. APPENDIX I11 Fano’s Postulate In later parts of our investigation we shall have occasion to exclude the case where the field F [of coordinates] has characteristic 2 [+ 1 = - 11. A geometrical characterization of this fact may be obtained as follows. The four points A , B, C, D in the linear manifold M are said t o form a quadrangle, if they are coplanar [so that A B C D has rank 31 whereas no three of them are collinear [so that A B C=A B D =A C D= B C 4- D + + + + + + + + + + has rank 31. 2 that the lines A B and C D meet in a C and B D point El, the lines A Fig.

H ~k7 of , n elements in W were dependent which contradicts (b). Thus different (n - 1)-tuplets in W span different subspaces in A ; and this proves (2). (3) If S is a subspace of rank i, and if 1 < i, then S contains a t least d subspaces of rank i - 1. Denote by s1,. , s1 a basis of S. If z is an element in F , then let 1-2 s, = Fs, + F(s, 1 4-zsz). , = 1 I t is easy to see that r(S,) = i - 1, and that S, = S, if, and only if, z = y (since the elements s, are independent). Thus we have constructed exactly d distinct subspaces of rank i - 1.
