Configurations --- history and notation

Presented by Harald GROPP
Type: Poster
Track: Poster Session


In this talk I shall give a short survey on configurations as combinatorial and geometrical discrete structures from a historical point of view with a special focus on the question of notation. Configurations were formally defined in 1876 by Reye and investigated mainly in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and in the last 30 years with a long break in between. Due to the special aspect of this symposium the questions of symmetry will play a considerable role.
