Description:
The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The major themes are the projective and affine spaces, and the polar spaces associated with sesquilinear or quadratic forms on projective spaces. The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.

This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.
