Definitions: Flock, Star Flock, Thick Cone

Theorem 11.1.4: If q = pn, with p = 2 or 3 then a proper star flock of a thick cone is given by F(t,g(t),0) where g is a pe-linearized polynomial for some e|n with e < n or every line of Z' = 0 which contains at least two points of DF contains a multiple of p, but not a multiple of p2 points of DF and, in characteristic 3, N > q/3 + 1.

Pf: This is just a restatement of the open cases in the classification given by Theorem 11.1.2 [back]
