Parallelisms of quadric sets

William Cherowitzo and Norman L. Johnson

Vol. 12 (2011), No. 1, 21–34

In this article, it is shown that every flock of a hyperbolic quadric H and every flock of a quadratic cone C in PG(3,K), for K a field, is in a transitive parallelism of H or C, respectively. Furthermore, it is shown it is possible to have parallelisms of quadratic cones by maximal partial flocks. The theory of parallelisms of quadratic cones is generalized to analogous results for parallelisms of α-cones.
