local reflexion space; flat Cartan geometry; local infinitesimal automorphisms
A reflexion space is generalization of a symmetric space introduced by O. Loos in [4]. We generalize locally symmetric spaces to local reflexion spaces in the similar way. We investigate, when local reflexion spaces are equivalently given by a locally flat Cartan connection of certain type.
