California State University, Fresno

from 12:00 p.m. to 12:50 p.m.
Peters Building 428

Alpha-flokki generalize the well-studied, and well-known, flocks of quadratic cones. They were introduced in 2009 by Kantor and Penttila, and later on studied by Cherowitzo and Johnson (2010), and Cherowitzo and Holder (unpublished).
In this talk the speaker will explain how alpha-flokki generalize flocks of quadratic cones, and also go over the interesting connections between alpha-flokki and certain translation planes. The structure of the collineation group of such planes will also be discussed.

Most of the results in this talk are in an article authored by W. Cherowitzo (UC Denver), N.L. Johnson (U of Iowa), and the speaker. Part of this article was written while the speaker was in a sabbatical leave (and visiting UC Denver). Hence, this talk constitutes his sabbatical leave oral report.
