When non-Euclidean geometry was first developed, it seemed little more than a curiosity with no relevance to the real world. Then to everyone's amazement, it turned out to be essential to Einstein's general theory of relativity.

Coxeter's book has remained out of print for too long. Hats off to the MAA for making this classic available once more.'5/5(4). A short history of geometry precedes a systematic exposition of the principles of non-Euclidean geometry.

Starting with fundamental assumptions, the author examines the theorems of Hjelmslev, mapping a plane into a circle, the angle of parallelism and area of a polygon, regular polygons, straight lines and planes in space, and the horosphere/5(2).

This is a reissue of Professor Coxeter's classic text on non-Euclidean geometry. It begins with a historical introductory chapter, and then devotes three chapters to surveying real projective geometry, and three to elliptic geometry/5. Non-Euclidean Geometry is a history of the alternate geometries that have emerged since the rejection of Euclid s parallel postulate.

Italian mathematician ROBERTO BONOLA ( ) begins by surveying efforts by Greek, Arab, and Renaissance mathematicians to close the gap in Euclid s axiom/5.

This book is written like a mystery, and I thoroughly enjoyed the way it led me into an understanding of non-Euclidean geometry. It builds the foundation - neutral geometry, while keeping you into suspense as to whether the parallel postulate can be proved.

PREFACE Non-Euclidean Geometry is now recognized as an important branch of Mathe- matics. Those who teach Geometry should have some knowledge of this subject, and all who are interested in Mathematics will find much to stimulate them and much for them to enjoy in the novel results and views that it presents.

Specifically, I'm searching for a recommendation in Euclidean geometry/Non-Euclidean Geometry, whether it is a book, a pdf, or a website tutorial. I do not want an book with an axiomatic treatment style for right now.

Non-Euclidean Geometry Online: a Guide to Resources. Mircea Pitici. June Good expository introductions to non-Euclidean geometry in book form are easy to obtain, with a fairly small investment.

The aim of this text is to offer a pleasant guide through the many online resources on non-Euclidean geometry (and a bit more). This book is an attempt to give a simple and direct account of the Non-Euclidean Geometry, and one which presupposes but little knowledge of Mathematics.

The first three chapters assume a knowledge of only Plane and Solid Geometry and Trigonometry, and the entire book can be read by one who has taken the mathematical courses commonly given in Brand: Manning. This chapter focuses on non-Euclidean geometry.

It discusses the structure of geometry and its methods of proof. The theorem of Pythagoras states that the square on the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares on its two legs. There are over 80 proofs of this theorem.

NON-EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRIES In the previous chapter we began by adding Euclid’s Fifth Postulate to his five common notions and first four postulates.

This produced the familiar geometry of the ‘Euclidean’ plane in which there exists precisely one line through a given point parallel to a. Non-Euclidean Geometry first examines the various attempts to prove Euclid's parallel postulate-by the Greeks, Arabs, and mathematicians of the Renaissance.

Then, ranging through the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, it considers the forerunners and founders of non-Euclidean geometry, such as Saccheri, Lambert, Legendre, W. Bolyai, Gauss.

Thanks for A2A, George. However first read a disclaimer: I've never been comfortable with Euclidean geometry, and, actually, I had even dislike for this sort of math.

So my geometric knowledge is fairly limited and lacking coherency. Moreove. Euclidean geometry only deals with straight lines, while non-Euclidean geometry is the study of triangles.

Euclidean geometry assumes that the surface is flat, while non-Euclidean geometry. Originally non-Euclidean geometry included only the geometries that contradicted Euclid's 5th Postulate. But then mathematicians realized that if interesting things happen when Euclid's 5th Postulate is tossed out, maybe interesting things happen if other postulates are contradicted.

Prof Duncan MacLaren Young Sommerville FRSE FRAS (–) was a Scottish mathematician and astronomer. He compiled a bibliography on non-Euclidean geometry and also wrote a leading textbook in that field. He also wrote Introduction to the Geometry of N Dimensions, advancing the study of polytopes.

This book does contain “spoilers” in the form of solutions to problems that are often presented directly after the problems themselves – if possible, try to figure out each problem on your own before peeking.
