!he incidence matrix If of points and d-flats in PG(t, q) is a (O,l)-matrix which may be considered a _trAx with entries from the field GF (q) , where q is a prime power, q'" p. Let r d(t, 9.) denote thr rank of If over (JF (q). In this paper, & fonml.a for r t 1(t, q) and an upper bound for r (t,q), 1 S d S t-l, are given. In the case q =p, the 'bound on… CONTINUE READING
