Title: On tight sets of hyperbolic quadrics


A set of points $M$ of a finite polar space $P$ is called tight, if the average number of points of $M$ collinear with a given point of $P$ equals the maximum possible value. In the case when $P$ is a hyperbolic quadric, the notion of tight sets generalises that of Cameron-Liebler line classes in $PG(3,q)$, whose images under the Klein correspondence are the tight sets of the Klein quadric. Very recently, some new constructions and necessary conditions for the existence of Cameron-Liebler line classes have been obtained. In this talk, we will discuss a possible extension of these results to the general case of tight sets of hyperbolic quadrics.
