GEOMETRY REVISITED BY COXETER AND GREITZER PDF

Buy Now Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found here are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon. The transformational point of view is emphasized: reflections, rotations, translations, similarities, inversions, and affine and projective transformations. Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed. Table of Contents 1.

Coxeter February 9, March 31, is regarded as one of the greatest geometers of the 20th century. He was most noted for his work on regular polytopes and higher-dimensional geometries. He was a champion of the classical approach to geometry, in a period when the tendency was to approach geometry more and more via algebra. Greitzer August 10, February 22, was the founding chairman of the committee in charge of the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad, and the publisher of the pre-college mathematics journal Arbelos.

Geometry Revisited

For example, K. The volume contains six chapters which deal with the following topics: 1 Points and lines connected with a triangle; 2 some properties of circles; 3 collinearity and concurrence; 4 transformations; 5 an introduction to inversive geometry; 6 an introduction to projective geometry; The very lucid presentation takes the reader from elementary problems of plane Euclidean geometry to the fundamental concepts of non-Euclidean geometry, whose metric is briefly illustrated by the conformal model. Starting with simple geometric figures triangle, lines, circle and their properties, the volume advances to higher problems and figures in a manner that is convenient for the student and also whets his appetite. The always original developments use very simple tools theorems of Ceva and Menelaos and soon proceed to higher configurations theorems of Pascal and Brianchon on the circle.
