Summary:
Dembowski's chief research interest lay in the connections between finite geometries and group theory. His book Finite Geometries, brought together essentially all that was known at that time about finite geometrical structures, including key results of the author, in a unified and structured perspective. This book became a standard reference as soon as it appeared in 1968. It influenced the expansion of  Read more...
