Partial flocks of the quadratic cone yielding Mathon maximal arcs
In  Hamilton and Thas (2006) describe a link between maximal arcs of Mathon type and partial flocks of the quadratic cone. This link is of a rather algebraic nature. In this paper we establish a geometric connection between these two structures. We also define a composition on the flock planes and use this to work out an analogue of the synthetic version of Mathon's theorem (see De Clerck et al. (2011) ). Finally, we show how it is possible to construct a maximal arc of Mathon type of degree 2d, containing a Denniston arc of degree d provided that there is a solution to a certain given system of trace conditions. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
