Projective Geometry and Projective Metrics (Pure & Applied Mathematics)

 
9780121483562: Projective Geometry and Projective Metrics (Pure & Applied Mathematics)

The basic results and methods of projective and non-Euclidean geometry are indispensable for the geometer, and this book--different in content, methods, and point of view from traditional texts--attempts to emphasize that fact. Results of special theorems are discussed in detail only when they are needed to develop a feeling for the subject or when they illustrate a general method. On the other hand, an unusual amount of space is devoted to the discussion of the fundamental concepts of distance, motion, area, and perpendicularity.
Topics include the projective plane, polarities and conic sections, affine geometry, projective metrics, and non-Euclidean and spatial geometry. Numerous figures appear throughout the text, which concludes with a bibliography and index.

Topics include the projective plane, polarities and conic sections, affine geometry, projective metrics, and non-Euclidean and spatial geometry. Includes numerous figures. 1953 edition.
