Book Description

This work confronts the question of geometric processes of derivation, specifically the derivation of affine planes - keying in on construction techniques and types of transformations in which lines of a newly-created plane can be understood as subplanes of the original plane. The book provides a theory of subplane covered nets without restriction to the finite case or imposing commutativity conditions.
