This can be the single publication related to geometric configurations of issues and features. It provides intimately the heritage of the subject, with its surges and declines seeing that its starting in 1876. It covers the entire advances within the box because the revival of curiosity in geometric configurations a few twenty years in the past. The author's contributions are primary to this revival. specifically, he initiated the learn of 4-configurations (that is, those who include 4 issues on each one line, and 4 strains via every one point); the consequences are absolutely defined within the textual content. the most novelty within the method of all geometric configurations is the focus on their symmetries, which give the chance to house configurations of quite huge sizes. The e-book brings the readers to the bounds of current wisdom in a leisurely method, permitting them to benefit from the fabric in addition to attract them to aim their hand at increasing it

This can be done by assigning to such matrix elements the value 1 and to the others 0 or by some other specification. Levi’s own preference is to use an array of small squares and an X marked in each square that represents an incidence. 2 and denote there by (103 )4 . 1(a). 1(b). This latter form demonstrates one of the uses of incidence matrices: It shows at a glance that the configuration in question is selfdual, since the matrix is symmetric with respect to the main diagonal. 4. 1. 2 and denoted there by (103 )4 .

Pr−1 , Lr−1 , Pr = P0 , with each Li incident with Pi and Pi+1 (all subscripts understood mod r) multilateral. 5, the sequence of points 1, 2, 8, 0, 4, 5, 7, 9, 3, 6, 1 (and the lines determined by adjacent pairs) determines a multilateral that involves all points and all lines. A multilateral path satisfies the same conditions except the coincidence of the first and last elements. A Hamiltonian multilateral passes through all points and uses all lines, each precisely once; hence the example just given is a Hamiltonian multilateral.

6. Four realizations of the Pappus configuration (93 )1 . 6. 4. Now, with the symmetry concepts available, we can modify Levi graphs in such a way that for symmetric geometric configurations the information appears in a much more condensed form. We call these graphs “reduced Levi graphs” and describe them separately for cyclic and for dihedral symmetry groups4 . The reduced Levi graph R(C) of a geometric (or topological or combinatorial) configuration C with a cyclic group cr and of orbit type [h1 , h2 ] is a bipartite graph that consists of h1 black vertices and h2 white vertices corresponding to the orbits of points and of lines of C.
