The Alexandrov theorem of space-time simplified and generalized in terms of affine incidence geometry of any dimension over any field

Units : Discrete Mathematics | ULB171

Description :

The structure of the Minkowski space of special relativity is interpreted and generalized with the help of an affine space A whose
projective space at infinity is provided with a set B of distinguished points. This structure is studied at various levels of
abstraction. It can be characterized for a broad range of pairs (A,B) including those where B is a quadric
