This book is a compilation of the papers presented at the conference in Winnipeg on the subject of finite geometry in 1984. It covers different fields in finite geometry: classical finite geometry, the geometry of finite planes, geometric structures and the theory of translation planes.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
