### Segre's theorem in $3$ dimensions with a “twist”

As I understand, there is a $3$-dimensional analogue of Segre's theorem stating that the maximum size of a set in ${\bf F}_q^3$ ($q$ odd) with no three points collinear is $q^2+1$. I am trying to ...

### What are some compact Hessian manifolds?

In case this is too general, here is a more specific question. Is there a hyperbolic threefold which admits a Hessian metric (hyperbolic or otherwise)? Background A Hessian manifold is a Riemannian ...

### On the perturbation of one vertex of an n-simplex so that point the given point on one of its face gets into its interior

I have a closed cube $Q_{0}=[0,1]^l$ and half-plane $H=\{(z_1,z_2,...,z_l) \in \mathbb{R}^l : z_1 + z_2 +...+ z_l > \alpha \}$ in Euclidean space $\mathbb{R}^l$ with $0<\alpha<1$. Consider ...

### How to prove continuity in topological group action of ${\rm{GA}}_a(X)$ on $T(X)$, to make ${\rm{GA}}(X)$ a topological group?

The question comes from the following paragraph of a text on geometry in the context of affine geometry (Marcel Berger et al., "Geometry I", P56-57): 2.7.1.3. If we don't want to resort to ...

### Ellipsoid in $L^p([0,1],\lambda)$ spaces?

Let us consider $L^p([0,1],\lambda)$ spaces, were $\lambda$ is simply the lebesgue measure. These are Banach spaces for $p\ge1$ (of course). It is well known that for $1\leq p < q \leq +\infty$ we ...

### Pasch axiom and Pythagorean field condition?

I am looking for a reference for the claim that the Pasch axiom is equivalent to the Pythagorean field condition, and with respect to what base theory this should be true. Since posting the question, ...

### What is meant by a Lie group acting by affine transformations?

This question is a continuation of this one, where I did not receive a complete answer so am moving to MO. I am trying to understand a paper by JP Szaro that was referred to there, and in particular, ...

### Characterizing normal vectors of affinely independent subsets of the hypercube

Suppose we are looking at the hypercube in $\mathbb{R}^n$. I tend to the think of the cube with vertex coordinates 0 or 1, but maybe this is easier for the $\pm1$ cube. Now suppose we have an affine ...

Let $M$ be a smooth manifold endowed with $\nabla$ a flat torsion-free connection. Let $\operatorname{Diff}(M)$ be the group of smooth diffeomorphisms of $M.$ Obviously if $\phi \in \operatorname{... 2answers 126 views ### Affine hull of a set of non-negative matrices with fixed row-sums Fix any non-negative matrix$M \in \mathbb{R}_{\geq 0}^{m \times n}$that contains no zero-row and no zero-column. Further, fix any positive vector$r \in \mathbb{R}_{> 0}^m$. With$nz(M) := \{(i,j)...
Suppose we are given a regular $2n$-dimensional Lagrangian fibration $\pi : (M,\omega) \to B$ with connected, compact fibers. Then it is well-known (Arnold-Liouville) that each fibre is a Lagrangian ...
### $(n-2)$-blocking sets in $AG(n,2)$
Let's define $k$-blocking set in affine space $AG(n,q)$ a set that meets every coset (translate of subspace) of dimension $k$. I have seen a lot work related to minimal $(n-1)$-blockings set. ...
