# Hyperbolic geometry by Birger Iversen

By Birger Iversen

Even though it arose from in simple terms theoretical issues of the underlying axioms of geometry, the paintings of Einstein and Dirac has confirmed that hyperbolic geometry is a primary element of recent physics. during this publication, the wealthy geometry of the hyperbolic airplane is studied intimately, resulting in the focus of the e-book, Poincare's polygon theorem and the connection among hyperbolic geometries and discrete teams of isometries. Hyperbolic 3-space is additionally mentioned, and the instructions that present examine during this box is taking are sketched. this may be a good creation to hyperbolic geometry for college kids new to the topic, and for specialists in different fields.

Geometry of Complex Numbers (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Illuminating, extensively praised ebook on analytic geometry of circles, the Moebius transformation, and 2-dimensional non-Euclidean geometries. "This e-book might be in each library, and each specialist in classical functionality concept could be acquainted with this fabric. the writer has played a unique provider via making this fabric so very easily available in one ebook.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography offers with the retrieval of knowledge a few geometric item from facts pertaining to its projections (shadows) on planes or cross-sections through planes. it's a geometric relative of automated tomography, which reconstructs a picture from X-rays of a human sufferer. the topic overlaps with convex geometry and employs many instruments from that region, together with a few formulation from indispensable geometry.

First Steps in Differential Geometry: Riemannian, Contact, Symplectic (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

Differential geometry arguably deals the smoothest transition from the normal collage arithmetic series of the 1st 4 semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the better degrees of abstraction and facts encountered on the top department by means of arithmetic majors. this present day it really is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the research of constructions at the tangent space," and this article develops this viewpoint.
