This chapter presents the proof for the Fundamental Theorem of Descent in buildings: that if Γ‎ is a descent group, the set of residues of a building Δ‎ that are stabilized by a subgroup Γ‎ of Aut(Γ‎) forms a thick building. It begins with the hypothesis: Let Π‎ be an arbitrary Coxeter diagram, let S be the vertex set of Π‎ and let (W, S) be the corresponding Coxeter system. It then defines a Γ‎-residue and a Γ‎-chamber as well as a descent group of Δ‎ before concluding with the main result about the fixed point building of Γ‎.

Keywords:   descent group, Fundamental Theorem of Descent, building, residue, thick building, Coxeter diagram, Coxeter system, Γ‎-residue, Γ‎-chamber, fixed point building
