Modern Geometries is engaging, accessible, and the only college textbook that describes geometry as it is understood and used by contemporary mathematicians and Cited by: 9. Each chapter is essentially a short course on one aspect of modern geometry, including finite geometries, the geometry of transformations, convexity, advanced Euclidian geometry, inversion, projective geometry, geometric aspects of topology, and non-Euclidean geometries. This edition reflects the recommendations /5(12). Engaging, accessible, and extensively illustrated, this brief, but solid introduction to modern geometry describes geometry as it is understood and used by contemporary mathematicians and theoretical scientists. Basically non-Euclidean in approach, it relates geometry to familiar ideas from analytic geometry, staying firmly in the Cartesian plane/5. This comprehensive, best-selling text focuses on the study of many different geometries -- rather than a single geometry -- and is thoroughly modern in its approach. Each chapter is essentially a short course on one aspect of modern geometry, including finite geometries, the geometry of transformations, convexity, advanced Euclidian geometry, inversion, projective geometry, geometric .

Before the first edition of this book appeared, a generation or more ago, modern geometry was practically nonexistent as a subject in the curriculum of American colleges and universities. Moreover, the edu-cational experts, both in the academic world and in the editorial offices of publishing houses, were almost unanimous in their opinion that the.
