Bounds on partial ovoids and spreads in classical generalized quadrangles

Stefaan De Winter and Koen Thas

Vol. 11 (2010), No. 1, 19–33

We present an improvement on a recent bound for small maximal partial ovoids of W(q3). We also classify maximal partial ovoids of size (q2 1) of Q(4,q) which allow a certain large automorphism group, and discuss examples for small q.
