Product of Two Projective Caps and 2-Cap in AG(1, b)

Let b ≥ 3 and C1, C2 be si-caps in the projective space PG(ui, b) for i = 1, 2. Then it is shown in [1, Theorem 6] that a (2s1s2)-cap in PG(u1 + u2 + 1, b) can be constructed by first doubling C1 (which yields a (2s1)-cap in the affine space AG(u1 + 1, b)), and then building the product of this cap with C2.

Construction

Let

C1 = {a1,…, as1} ⊂ Fbu1+1,        C2 = {b1,…, bs2} ⊂ Fbu2+1,

and α, β denote distinct, non-zero elements in Fb. Then the new cap is given by

{$\displaystyle \left(\vphantom{\begin{array}{c} \gamma a_{i}\\ b_{j}\end{array}}\right.$$\displaystyle \begin{array}{c} \gamma a_{i}\\ b_{j}\end{array}$$\displaystyle \left.\vphantom{\begin{array}{c} \gamma a_{i}\\ b_{j}\end{array}}\right)$  :  1 ≤ is1, 1 ≤ js2, γ ∈ {α, β}}.
