**Projective Geometry**

by Nigel Hitchin

2003**Number of pages**: 74

**Description**:

Projective geometry started life over 500 years ago in the study of perspective drawing: the distance between two points on the artistâ€™s canvas does not represent the true distance between the objects they represent so that Euclidean distance is not the right concept.
