Modern Geometry With Applications - 94 edition

Modern Geometry With Applications (ISBN10: 038794222X; ISBN13: 9780387942223)
ISBN13: 978-0387942223
ISBN10: 038794222X

Summary: ''This is an introduction to the theory and applications of modern geometry. It differs from other books in its field in its emphasis on applications and its discussion of Special Relativity as a major example of a non-Euclidean geometry. Besides Special Relativity, it covers two other important areas of non-Euclidean geometry: spherical geometry (used in navigation and astronomy) and projective geometry (used in art). In addition, it reviews many useful topics from Euclidean geometr
y, emphasizing transformations, and includes a chapter on conics and planetary orbits.'' ''Applications are stressed throughout the book. Every topic is motivated by an application and many additional applications are given in the exercises. The book would be an excellent introduction to higher geometry for those students, especially prospective mathematics teachers, who need to know how geometry is used in addition to its formal theory.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
