Stargazing in Affine Planes up to Order 8

  • Burkard Polster
Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


Most diagrams in this section were originally designed by Derrick Breach and published in [15] under the title “Star Gazing in Affine Planes.” In this article he presents pictures of all the affine planes up to order 8 and uses them to construct models for the classical inversive planes of the respective orders. He calls his pictures star diagrams.
