Abstract

It was shown by Babai in 1980 that almost all Steiner triple systems are rigid; that is, their only automorphism is the identity permutation. Those Steiner triple systems with the largest automorphism groups are the projective systems of orders $2^n-1$. In this paper we show that each such projective system may be transformed to a rigid Steiner triple system by at most $n$ Pasch trades whenever $n\ge 4$.
