On Transposed Translation Planes
Abstract: This paper is devoted to the study of a translation plane π(C) associated with a t-spread set C and its transposed t-spread set C t. In this paper, an explicit matrix form of the inverse of an isomorphism from a translation plane into another translation plane associated with t-spread sets is derived and proved that two translation planes associated with t-spread sets are isomorphic if and only if their corresponding transposed translation planes are isomorphic. Further, it is shown that the transpose of a flag-transitive plane is flag-transitive and derived a necessary and sufficient condition for a translation plane π(C) to be isomorphic to its transposed translation plane.
