Item description for Moufang Polygons by Jacques Tits & Richard M. Weiss...

This book gives the complete classification of Moufang polygons, starting from first principles. In particular, it may serve as an introduction to the various important algebraic concepts which arise in this classification including alternative division rings, quadratic Jordan division algebras of degree three, pseudo-quadratic forms, BN-pairs and norm splittings of quadratic forms. This book also contains a new proof of the classification of irreducible spherical buildings of rank at least three based on the observation that all the irreducible rank two residues of such a building are Moufang polygons. In an appendix, the connection between spherical buildings and algebraic groups is recalled and used to describe an alternative existence proof for certain Moufang polygons.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moufang Polygons?

Simply unbelievable! Unputdownable!  Nov 6, 2003
This book changed my life! I could not put it down. Every time I read it (and I have read it at least five times) I pick something new out of it. Not your everyday book on Moufang polygons, that is for sure. Buy it now!
 
Astonishingly refreshing!  Aug 7, 2003
I couldn't believe that a book on polygons could be so intriguing! Sophisticated in context, yet compelling.
Pick up a copy.
