An elementary description of the Mathieu dual hyperoval and its splitness

Satoshi Yoshiara

Vol. 14 (2015), No. 1, 81–110
Abstract

An elementary new construction of a 3-dimensional dual hyperoval over F4 is given, as well as an explicit analysis of the structure of its automorphism group. This provides a self-contained introduction to the Mathieu simple group M22. The basic properties of as a dimensional dual hyperoval, e.g. splitness, complements, linear systems, quotients and coverings, are derived from this construction.
