Finite geometry is the study of finite incidence structures (or hypergraphs) satisfying certain geometrically motivated axioms. In this course we will introduce various finite geometries and explore how these structures interact with combinatorics. In particular, we will study finite projective and affine spaces, generalized polygons and polar spaces. On the combinatorial side we will discuss blocking sets, strongly regular graphs, finite field Kakeya and Nikodym problems, and the cage problem.
