Abstract

Hyperplanes and hyperplane complements in the Segre product of partial linear spaces are investigated. The parallelism of such a complement is characterized in terms of the point-line incidence. Assumptions, under which the automorphisms of the complement are the restrictions of the automorphisms of the ambient space, are given. An affine covering for the Segre product of Veblenian gamma spaces is established. A general construction that produces non-degenerate hyperplanes in the Segre product of partial linear spaces embeddable into projective space is introduced.
