Remarks on infinitesimally desarguesian families of curves

  • Simon Gindikin


Infinitesimally Desarguesian two-parameter families of curves in the plane which are in a sense close to the family of straight lines are discussed. Their properties, examples, and multidimensional generalizations are considered.

Key words
