Affine Spaces

Chapter
Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics book series (PBM)

Abstract

An affine space X is nothing more than a vector space under the action of the group generated by the linear automorphisms and the translations; this group is called the affine group of X and is denoted by GA(X). Its elements are the (affine) automorphisms of X, or again the affine maps of X into itself. The elements of X are called points
