A New Look at Geometry (Dover Books on Mathematics) by Irving Adler

By Irving Adler

This richly specific assessment surveys the evolution of geometrical principles and the advance of the suggestions of contemporary geometry from precedent days to the current. subject matters contain projective, Euclidean, and non-Euclidean geometry in addition to the function of geometry in Newtonian physics, calculus, and relativity. Over a hundred workouts with solutions. 1966 edition.
