The authors survey some of the classification theorems for some classes of finite geometries belonging to Buekenhout diagrams obtained from Coxeter diagrams replacing some of strokes for projective planes with strokes for circular spaces or for dual circular spaces. They consider the following main themes:
The diagram \(c^ k\cdot A_ m\).
The diagram \(c\cdot C_{n-1}\). The plane case.
The diagram \(c \cdot D_{n-1}\). The plane case.
The diagram \(c^ k \cdot C_ m\) and \(c^ k \cdots D_ m\) with \(m \geq 3\).
The diagram \(c^{n-2} \cdot C_ 2\). Examples.
The diagram \(c^{n-1} \cdot C_ 2\). Theorems.
The diagram \(c \cdot A_{n-2} \cdot c^*\).
Two problems.
