Classical Geometry. Euclidean, Transformational, Inversive, And Projective
Features the classical themes of geometry with plentiful applications in mathematics, education, engineering, and science Accessible and reader-friendly, Classical Geometry: Euclidean, Transformational, Inversive, and Projective introduces readers to a valuable discipline that is crucial to understanding bothspatial relationships and logical reasoning
Focusing on the development of geometric intuitionwhile avoiding the axiomatic method, a problem solving approach is encouraged throughout
In addition to featuring real-world applications throughout, Classical Geometry Euclidean, Transformational, Inversive, and Projective includes Multiple entertaining and elegant geometry problems at the end of each section for every level of study Fully worked examples with exercises to facilitate comprehension and retention Unique topical coverage, such as the theorems of Ceva and Menalaus and their applications An approach that prepares readers for the art of logical reasoning, modeling, and proofs The book is an excellent textbook for courses in introductory geometry, elementary geometry, modern geometry, and history of mathematics at the undergraduate level for mathematics majors, as well
The book is also ideal for anyone who would like to learn the various applications of elementary geometry.
The book is strategically divided into three sections Part One focuses on Euclidean geometry, which provides the foundation for the rest of the material covered throughout Part Two discusses Euclidean transformations of the plane, as well as groups and their use in studying transformations and Part Three covers inversive and projective geometry as natural extensions of Euclidean geometry
