“Finite atomistic directly indecomposable modular lattices and finite projective geometries”

Part 3 in a series of lectures aiming to prove that if L is a finite modular lattice whose atoms join to 1, then L decomposes as a direct product where each factor is either a Boolean algebra or the subspace lattice of a finite projective geometry. In this lecture I will show how to recover a finite projective geometry from its subspace lattice.
