Morphisms of projective geometries and of corresponding lattices. (English) Zbl 0784.51003

The authors explore the well-known connection between projective geometries and projective lattices. The authors define the concept of morphism for projective geometries and for projective lattices. This enables the authors to extend the classical connection mentioned above to an equivalence between the category of projective geometries and the category of projective lattices. The article is well written and all results are clearly explained.
