On Hermitian varieties in PG(6, q2)

Angela Aguglia, Luca Giuzzi, Masaaki Homma


In this paper we characterize the non-singular Hermitian variety ℋ(6, q2) of PG(6, q2), q ≠ 2 among the irreducible hypersurfaces of degree q + 1 in PG(6, q2) not containing solids by the number of its points and the existence of a solid S meeting it in q4 + q2 + 1 points.
