Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree NameResearch report
This paper concerns 4-dimensional (topological locally compact connected) Minkowski planes that admit a 7-dimensional automorphism group 𝚺. It is shown that such a plane is either classical or has a distinguished point that is fixed by the connected component of 𝚺 and that the derived affine plane at this point is a 4-dimensional translation plane with a 7-dimensional collineation group.
