On the geometry of the exceptional group G 2(q), q even

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Antonio Cossidente, Dr Oli King



We study some geometry of the exceptional group G 2(q), q even, in terms of symplectic geometric configurations in the projective space PG(5,q). Using the spin representation of Sp 6(q), we obtain an alternative description of the Split Cayley hexagon H(q) related to G 2(q). We also give another geometric proof of the maximality of G 2(q), q even, in PSp 6(q). © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
