Models of small geometries

In another life Burkard was very interested in incidence geometry. This page features some leftovers from this time.

The animated movies "PG(3,2): The Smallest Projective Space" and "Growing Generalized Quadrangles" can be found here.

If you are interested in owning a 3d model of the smallest projective space or one of its most interesting subgeometries, you can have them printed out at Burkard's shop at Shapeways.

The following are links to some pages with pretty pictures of small geometries.

The Fano plane 

Generalized quadrangles 

Desargues configuration 

Projective plane of order 5 

Projective space
