Description:
This book collects accessible lectures on four geometrically flavored fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in recent years: hyperbolic geometry, dynamics in several complex variables, convex geometry, and volume estimation. Each lecture course start with elementary concepts, proceeds through highlights of the field, and concludes with a taste of advanced material.

Book cover: The Geometry of the SphereThe Geometry of the Sphere
by - 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.
