An infinite family of incidence geometries whose incidence graphs are locally X

Keywords: Kneser graph, locally X graph, incidence geometry


We construct a new infinite family of incidence geometries of arbitrarily large rank. These geometries are thick and residually connected and their type-preserving automorphism groups are symmetric groups. We also compute their Buekenhout diagram. The incidence graphs of these geometries are locally X graphs, but more interestingly, the automorphism groups act transitively, not only on the vertices, but more strongly on the maximal cliques of these graphs.
