**The Geometry of the Sphere**

by

**John C. Polking**-

**Rice University**

We are interested here in the geometry of an ordinary sphere. In plane geometry we study points, lines, triangles, polygons, etc. On the sphere there are no straight lines. Therefore it is natural to use great circles as replacements for lines.
