A Course of Pure Geometry: Properties of the Conic Sections
by E.H. Askwith
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1917
Number of pages: 314
The book does not assume any previous knowledge of the Conic Sections, which are here treated ab initio, on the basis of the definition of them as the curves of projection of a circle. Many of the properties of the Conic Sections which can only be established with great labour from their focus and directrix property are proved quite simply when the curves are derived directly from the circle.

This is a text on 3-d Euclidean computational geometry intended to be used in engineering applications. On the other hand, the methods of Whitehead's algebra enable us to readily deal with Euclidean and non-Euclidean spaces of any dimension.

Planar crystallographic groups are one of the very first mathematical creations of humankind. This book's goal is the gradual unveiling of the structural and the mathematical that hides behind the visual and the artistic.

Mathematical billiards describe the motion of a mass point in a domain with elastic reflections from the boundary. Billiards is not a single mathematical theory, it is rather a mathematician’s playground where various methods are tested.

This book is written for Science students. The necessity of accurate draughtsmanship is insisted on throughout. We describe how the drawing instruments may be set and maintained. And the numerical answers are appended to many of the examples.
