A 2-(u, k, 1) block design is a set Q of v points and a collection of k-subsets of 9, called blocks, such that any two points lie in a unique block. Such designs have been classified in [ l&S] if their automorphism group acts doubly transitively or doubly homogeneously on its points. A classification for the case of flag transitive automorphism groups is(More)
In this paper we prove the following theorem. Let S be a linear space. Assume that S has an automorphism group G which is line-transitive and point-imprimitive with k < 9. Then S is one of the following:(a) A projective plane of order 4 or 7, (a) One of 2 linear spaces with v = 91 and k = 6, (b) One of 467 linear spaces with v = 729 and k = 8. In all cases(More)
This note is part of a general programme to classify the automorphism groups of finite linear spaces. There have been a number of contributions to this programme, including two recent surveys [8, 3]. One of the most significant contributions was the classification of flag-transitive linear spaces [2]. Since then, the effort has been to classify the(More)
A proper non-empty subset C of the points of a linear space S = (P; L) is called line-closed if any two intersecting lines of S , each meeting C at least twice, have their intersection in C. We show that when every line has k points and every point lies on r lines the maximum size for such sets is r + k ? 2. In addition it is shown that this cannot happen(More)
