7, it suffices to make − → a choice for the maps {ϕe | e ∈ E } in such a way that ϕ−1 e ψe ∈ Aut G d0 (e) (Dd0 (e) ) = − → Td0 (e) K d0 (e) , for all e ∈ E . Our next aim is to show that modification of ϕe by elements in Td0 (e) and Te,e¯ results in isomorphic amalgams and that these modifications can be used to ensure that ϕ−1 e ψe ∈ K d0 (e) . 10. Let G be a CT-structure of type G0 given by a family of connecting − → maps {ϕe | e ∈ E }. We say that G is a concrete CT structure associated to (V, W) if its inclusion maps ϕe satisfy ad(ϕe )(K e ) = K d0 (e) , where K e , K d0 (e) ∈ K0 .

Let n e be the element of N G e (De,e¯ ) given by ⎛ ⎞ 0 −1 0 ⎝1 0 0 ⎠ 0 0 1 − → with respect to the ordered basis Ve . Now, for every e ∈ E , let X¯ e+ = ϕe (X d+0 (e) ). Then, the d0 (e)-panel of Δe containing Ce equals Δ¯ e = {Ce } ∪ {λn e Ce | λ ∈ X¯ e+ }. We now define f θe : Δ¯ e → Δ¯ f Ce ⇔→ C f λn e Ce ⇔→ ϕ f ◦ ϕ−1 e (λ)n f C f Note that since the structure of the d0 (e)-panel of Δe on Ce (resp. of Δ f on C f ) as f a Moufang set is entirely determined by G d0 (e) the map θe , induced by the group − → isomorphism ϕ f ◦ ϕ−1 e preserves this structure.

4 Applications of Valuations We give a number of instances were valuations have been used to obtain new classification results regarding dense near polygons. (1) All dense near octagons with three points per line have been classified in [23]. By [3, Theorem 4], we know that every such dense near octagon must contain convex subspaces of diameter 3, the hexes. Each such hex is a dense near hexagon with three points per line. By [1], we know that there are eleven such near hexagons. The valuations of the eleven dense near hexagons with three points per line have been classified in the papers [20, 21].
