The thought of elation generalized quadrangle is a average generalization to the speculation of generalized quadrangles of the $64000 proposal of translation planes within the concept of projective planes. virtually any recognized classification of finite generalized quadrangles will be produced from an appropriate classification of elation quadrangles.

In this booklet the writer considers a number of elements of the speculation of elation generalized quadrangles. targeted realization is given to neighborhood Moufang stipulations at the foundational point, exploring for example a query of Knarr from the Nineteen Nineties in regards to the very idea of elation quadrangles. all of the recognized effects on Kantor’s major energy conjecture for finite elation quadrangles are amassed, a few of them released the following for the 1st time. The structural idea of elation quadrangles and their teams is seriously emphasised. different similar subject matters, equivalent to p-modular cohomology, Heisenberg teams and life difficulties for convinced translation nets, are in brief touched.

The textual content starts off from scratch and is largely self-contained. many various proofs are given for identified theorems. Containing dozens of routines at a variety of degrees, from really easy to fairly tough, this path will stimulate undergraduate and graduate scholars to go into the attention-grabbing and wealthy global of elation quadrangles. The extra finished mathematician will in particular locate the ultimate chapters difficult.
