This self-contained and hugely distinct research considers projective areas of 3 dimensions over a finite box. it's the moment and center quantity of a three-volume treatise on finite projective areas, the 1st quantity being Projective Geometrics Over Finite Fields (OUP, 1979). the current paintings restricts itself to 3 dimensions, and considers either subject matters that are analogous of geometry over the complicated numbers and subject matters that come up out of the trendy idea of occurrence constructions. The publication additionally examines homes of 4 and 5 dimensions, primary functions to translation planes, easy teams, and coding concept.
