An Elementary Course in Synthetic Projective Geometry
by Derrick Norman Lehmer
Publisher: Project Gutenberg 2005
Number of pages: 120
The following course is intended to give, in as simple a way as possible, the essentials of synthetic projective geometry. Enough examples have been provided to give the student a clear grasp of the theory. The student should have a thorough grounding in ordinary elementary geometry.

A continually updated book devoted to rigorous axiomatic exposition of the basic concepts of geometry. Self-contained comprehensive treatment with detailed proofs should make this book both accessible and useful to a wide audience of geometry lovers.

The Radon transform is an important topic in integral geometry which deals with the problem of expressing a function on a manifold in terms of its integrals over certain submanifolds. Solutions to such problems have a wide range of applications.

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.
