This chapter considers the notion of parallel residues in a building. It begins with the assumption that Δ‎ is a building of type Π‎, which is arbitrary except in a few places where it is explicitly assumed to be spherical. Δ‎ is not assumed to be thick. The chapter then elaborates on a hypothesis which states that S is the vertex set of Π‎, (W, S) is the corresponding Coxeter system, d is the W-distance function on the set of ordered pairs of chambers of Δ‎, and ℓ is the length function on (W, S). It also presents a notation in which the type of a residue R is denoted by Typ(R) and concludes with the condition that residues R and T of a building will be called parallel if R = projR(T) and T = projT(R).

Keywords:   parallel residues, building, vertex, Coxeter system, chamber, length function, residue
