Book cover: The Axioms Of Descriptive GeometryThe Axioms Of Descriptive Geometry
by - Cambridge University Press ,
In this book, after the statement of the axioms, the ideas considered are those concerning the association of Projective and Descriptive Geometry by means of ideal points, point to point correspondence, congruence, distance, and metrical geometry.
Book cover: The Axiomatic MethodThe Axiomatic Method
by - North Holland Publishing Company ,
The volume naturally divides into three parts. Part I consists of 14 papers on the foundations of geometry, Part II of 14 papers on the foundations of physics, and Part III of five papers on general problems and applications of the axiomatic method.
Book cover: Modern GeometryModern Geometry
by - University of South Carolina ,
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.
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.

Book cover: Quadratic Forms and Their ApplicationsQuadratic Forms and Their Applications
by - American Mathematical Society ,
This volume includes papers ranging from applications in topology and geometry to the algebraic theory of quadratic forms. Various aspects of the use of quadratic forms in algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, and number theory are addressed.
Book cover: Tilings and PatternsTilings and Patterns
by - Mathematicians.org.uk ,
Contents: Background Material (Euclidean Space, Delone Sets, Z-modules and lattices); Tilings of the plane (Periodic, Aperiodic, Penrose Tilings, Substitution Rules and Tiling, Matching Rules); Symbolic and Geometric tilings of the line.

Book cover: Geometry and Group TheoryGeometry and Group Theory
by - Texas A&M University ,
Lecture notes on Geometry and Group Theory. In this course, we develop the basic notions of Manifolds and Geometry, with applications in physics, and also we develop the basic notions of the theory of Lie Groups, and their applications in physics.
Book cover: Origami and Geometric ConstructionsOrigami and Geometric Constructions
by ,
Origami is the art of folding sheets of paper into interesting and beautiful shapes. In this text the author presents a variety of techniques for origami geometric constructions. The field has surprising connections to other branches of mathematics.
Book cover: An Elementary Course in Synthetic Projective GeometryAn Elementary Course in Synthetic Projective Geometry
by - Project Gutenberg ,
The book gives, in a simple way, 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.
Book cover: Categorical GeometryCategorical Geometry

This is a book on the general theory of analytic categories. From the table of contents: Introduction; Analytic Categories; Analytic Topologies; Analytic Geometries; Coherent Analytic Categories; Coherent Analytic Geometries; and more.
Book cover: Flavors of GeometryFlavors of Geometry
by - Cambridge University Press ,
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.
Book cover: Convex Geometric AnalysisConvex Geometric Analysis
by - Cambridge University Press ,
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.
Book cover: The Radon TransformThe Radon Transform
by - Birkhauser Boston ,
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.
Book cover: Geometry and TopologyGeometry and Topology
by - Macquarie University ,
The geometry part of the text includes an introductory course on projective geometry and some chapters on symmetry. The topology part consists of geometric and combinatorial topology and includes material on the classification of surfaces, and more.
Book cover: Combinatorial and Computational GeometryCombinatorial and Computational Geometry
by - Cambridge University Press ,
This volume includes articles exploring geometric arrangements, polytopes, packing, covering, discrete convexity, geometric algorithms and their complexity, and the combinatorial complexity of geometric objects, particularly in low dimension.
Book cover: Fundamentals of GeometryFundamentals of Geometry
by - Moscow State University ,
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.
Book cover: Fractal GeometryFractal Geometry
by - Yale University ,
This is an introduction to fractal geometry for students without especially strong mathematical preparation, or any particular interest in science. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.
Book cover: Topics in Finite Geometry: Ovals, Ovoids and Generalized QuadranglesTopics in Finite Geometry: Ovals, Ovoids and Generalized Quadrangles
