Geometry from Euclid to Knots

By Saul Stahl

Tracing the formal improvement of Euclidean geometry, this article heavily follows Euclid's vintage, Elements. as well as delivering a ancient point of view on airplane geometry, it covers similar issues, together with non-neutral Euclidean geometry, circles and normal polygons, projective geometry, symmetries, inversions, knots and hyperlinks, and casual topology. comprises 1,000 perform difficulties. ideas on hand. 2003 variation.
