Convex Geometric Analysis
by Keith Ball, Vitali Milman
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1998
Number of pages: 236
Convex bodies are at once simple and amazingly rich in structure. This collection involves researchers in classical convex geometry, geometric functional analysis, computational geometry, and related areas of harmonic analysis. It is representative of the best research in a very active field that brings together ideas from several major strands in mathematics.

This course is a study of modern geometry as a logical system based upon postulates and undefined terms. Projective geometry, theorems of Desargues and Pappus, transformation theory, affine geometry, Euclidean, non-Euclidean geometries, topology.
by Charles Howard Hinton - S. Sonnenschein & Co.
C. H. Hinton discusses the subject of the higher dimensionality of space, his aim being to avoid mathematical subtleties and technicalities, and thus enable his argument to be followed by readers who are not sufficiently conversant with mathematics.

This book is meant to be rigorous, elementary and minimalist. At the same time it includes about the maximum what students can absorb in one semester. It covers Euclidean geometry, Inversive geometry, Non-Euclidean geometry and Additional topics.

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.
