Doubly transitive lines I: Higman pairs and roux

by   Joseph W. Iverson, et al.

We study lines through the origin of finite-dimensional complex vector spaces that enjoy a doubly transitive automorphism group. In doing so, we make fundamental connections with both discrete geometry and algebraic combinatorics. In particular, we show that doubly transitive lines are necessarily optimal packings in complex projective space, and we introduce a fruitful generalization of abelian distance-regular antipodal covers of the complete graph.
