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.

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.

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.

These are notes from an experimental mathematics course entitled Geometry and the Imagination as developed by Conway, Doyle, Thurston and others. The course aims to convey the richness, diversity, connectedness, depth and pleasure of mathematics.
