Compact Projective Planes: Misprints

# Misprints

Compare also our list of errata, our hints to recent developments and our list of recent literature.
The following text contains characters from the "symbol" font, to display mathematical formulae. It may happen that these symbols appear crambled on your screen, or that your browser is able to show them right on the screen, but is unable to print them correctly. It may also happen that the characters on your screen appear to be perfectly innocent, but their alignment is not quite right. In these cases (and in order to produce a nice print-out), we offer the text also as a PostScript version and as a PDF version.
Consult this link to find information about enabling the symbol fonts with netscape under X.

34.8, (b):
The description of the transitive elation groups of the proper Moulton planes is wrong. The groups have axis aw, as stated (here, a is the unversal fixed point and w is an arbitrary point of the universal fixed line), but the center for this group is not a, as stated, but rather w.
The proof remains unchanged.
