Tits Buildings for Symplectic Groups

This page is a supplement to the paper Das Titsgebäude von Siegelschen Modulgruppen vom Geschlecht 2, by M. Friedland and G.K. Sankaran. That paper is in German, because the basis of it is the Hannover Diplomarbeit of the first author. There is a short summary of the results in English.

Below we illustrate the Tits buildings for some of the symplectic groups. The pictures are in PostScript and were generated using MetaPost.

The research illustrated here was partly funded by the British Council and the DAAD under the British-German Academic Research Collaboration Programme.
