# Intersection theorem In projective geometry, an intersection theorem or incidence theorem is a statement concerning an incidence structure – consisting of points, lignes, and possibly higher-dimensional objects and their incidences – together with a pair of objects A and B (par exemple, a point and a line). La "théorème" stipule que, whenever a set of objects satisfies the incidences (c'est à dire. can be identified with the objects of the incidence structure in such a way that incidence is preserved), then the objects A and B must also be incident. An intersection theorem is not necessarily true in all projective geometries; it is a property that some geometries satisfy but others don't.

Par exemple, Desargues' theorem can be stated using the following incidence structure: Points: {style d'affichage {UN,B,C,un,b,c,P,Q,R,O}} Lines: {style d'affichage {UN B,CA,avant JC,un B,ac,avant JC,Aa,Sib,Cc,PQ}} Incidences (in addition to obvious ones such as {style d'affichage (UN,UN B)} ): {style d'affichage {(O,Aa),(O,Sib),(O,Cc),(P,avant JC),(P,avant JC),(Q,CA),(Q,ac),(R,UN B),(R,un B)}} The implication is then {style d'affichage (R,PQ)} —that point R is incident with line PQ.

Famous examples Desargues' theorem holds in a projective plane P if and only if P is the projective plane over some division ring (skewfield} D — {displaystyle P=mathbb {P} _{2}ré} . The projective plane is then called desarguesian. A theorem of Amitsur and Bergman states that, in the context of desarguesian projective planes, for every intersection theorem there is a rational identity such that the plane P satisfies the intersection theorem if and only if the division ring D satisfies the rational identity.

Pappus's hexagon theorem holds in a desarguesian projective plane {style d'affichage mathbb {P} _{2}ré} if and only if D is a field; it corresponds to the identity {displaystyle forall a,bin D,quad acdot b=bcdot a} . Fano's axiom (which states a certain intersection does not happen) holds in {style d'affichage mathbb {P} _{2}ré} if and only if D has characteristic {style d'affichage neq 2} ; it corresponds to the identity a + a = 0.
