The complement of a subspace in a classical polar space

Krzysztof Petelczyc, Mariusz Żynel


In a polar space, embeddable into a projective space, we fix a subspace, that is contained in some hyperplane. The complement of that subspace resembles a slit space or a semiaffine space. We prove that under some assumptions the ambient polar space can be recovered in this complement.
