# A reference about Grassmannian over finite fields

Suppose $Gr_k(k,n)$ the Grassmannian which classifies all the dimension $k+1$ sub-spaces of a dimension $n+1$ linear space over the field $k$. For the case over a finite field $\mathbb F_{q}$, we can calculate the number of $Gr_{\mathbb F_q}(k,n)(\mathbb F_q)$.

Could someone give me a direct reference of this result? I know it is not very hard to calculate, but for some reasons I don't want to write the calculation in my paper but I need a reference for this. Thank you.

• I would just write the result without bothering with a reference or a proof. – Ben Webster Feb 8 '16 at 16:56
