Summary
"This book gives the complete classification of Moufang polygons. It also contains a new proof of the classification of irreducible spherical buildings of rank at least three based on the observation that all the irreducible rank two residues of such a building are Moufang polygons. In an appendix, the connection between spherical buildings and algebraic groups is recalled and used to describe an alternative existence proof for the exceptional Moufang polygons."--Jacket
