Reflection geometries over loops

  • Elisabetta Gabrieli
  • Helmut Karzel


We characterize right loops (L, +) without, respectively with an incidence fibration F from which one can derive a reflection or a point- reflection structure, respectively a reflection or a point- reflection geometry in the sense of [1].
