Among the topics are compact moduli spaces of surfaces of general type, the geometry of the ball quotient model of the moduli space for genus four curves, restrictions of stable bundles, the splitting principles and singularities, and spaces of sections of quadric surface fibrations over curves.
Among specific topics are finite focal-spreads, subgeometries from focal-spreads, the ubiquity of subgeometry partitions, hyperbolic fibrations and partial flocks, parallelisms of quadric sets, regular parallelisms, parallelisms over ordered fields, and transitive deficiency one.
While the computational testing reported here was carried out on the WRFs site selection problems with interdependence between two alternatives, which is represented by a quadric objective function, it is noted that this approach is not restricted to such cases and can be readily applied to the high-dimensional interdependence to any site selection.
