Compactification of the Bruhat-Tits building of PGL by lattices of smaller rank.

Doc. Math., J. DMV 6, 315-341 (2001)


Summary: In this paper we construct a compactification of the Bruhat-Tits building associated to the group $PGL(V)$ by attaching all the Bruhat-Tits buildings of $PGL(W)$ for non-trivial subspaces $W$ of $V$ as a boundary.
