A Geometric Construction for Some Ovoids of the Hermitian Surface

  • Luca GiuzziEmail author


Multiple derivation of the classical ovoid of the Hermitian surface \(\mathcal{H}(3,q^2)\) of \(PG(3,q^2)\) is a well known, powerful method for constructing large families of non classical ovoids of \(\mathcal{H}(3,q^2)\). In this paper, we shall provide a geometric costruction of a family of ovoids amenable to multiple derivation.
