Large quartic groups on translation planes. II: Even order: characterization of the Ott-Schaeffer planes. (English) Zbl 1155.51302
Summary: A general theory of collineation groups generated by quartic groups of even order is considered. Applications are given to collineation groups generated by large quartic groups.
