Groups of compact 8-dimensional planes: conditions implying the Lie property

Helmut R. Salzmann

Vol. 17 (2019), No. 3, 201–220
Abstract

The automorphism group Σ of a compact topological projective plane with an 8-dimensional point space is a locally compact group. If the dimension of Σ is at least 12, then Σ is known to be a Lie group. For the connected component Δ of Σ it is shown that dimΔ 10 suffices, if Δ is semisimple or does not fix exactly a nonincident point-line pair or a double-flag. Δ is also a Lie group, if Δ has a compact connected 1-dimensional normal subgroup and dimΔ 11.
