Finite geometry and combinatorics is the art of counting any phenomena that can be described by a diagram.

Everyday life is full of applications; from telephones to compact disc players, from the transmission of confidential information to the codes on any item on supermarket shelves.

This is a collection of thirty-five articles on covering topics such as finite projective spaces, generalized polygons, strongly regular graphs, diagram geometries and polar spaces.

Included here are articles from many of the leading practitioners in the field including, for the first time, several distinguished Russian mathematicians.

Many of the papers contain important new results and the growing use of computer algebra packages in this area is also demonstrated.
