From our Membership Agreement "Lulu is a place where people of all ages, backgrounds, experience, and professions can publish, sell, or buy creative content such as novels, memoirs, poetry, cookbooks, technical manuals, articles, photography books, children's books, calendars, and a host of other content that defies easy categorization. The book is a valuable source of data for readers interested in finite geometries. Show less. North-Holland Texts in Advanced Mathematics: Introduction to Finite Geometries focuses on the advancements in finite geometries, including mapping and combinatorics. The manuscript first offers information on the basic concepts on finite geometries and.

This book explores the mismatch between perception and physical reality, and describes the many factors that influence the perception of space including the meaning assigned to geometric concepts like distance, the judgment methods used to report the experience, the presence or absence of cues to depth, and the orientation of a stimulus with Cited by: This book surveys these geometries, including non-Euclidean metric geometries (hyperbolic geometry and elliptic geometry) and nonmetric geometries (for example, projective geometry), The study of such geometries complements and deepens the knowledge of the world contained in Euclidean geometry. Modern geometry is a fascinating and important Brand: Michael Henle.

Overall, the book is a kind of tour of geometries and geometric ideas. It is based on lectures that the author gave at the Independent University of Moscow to first year students. In the US it would be accessible to undergraduates, especially those with at least a bit of group theory. This book has as main aim to be a textbook of applied knowledge in real fluids as well as to the Hydraulic systems components and operation, with emphasis to the industrial or real life problems for piping and aerodynamic design geometries. Various problems will be presented and analyzed through this book.

With more than illustrations, Intimate Geometries: The Art and Life of Louise Bourgeois comprehensively surveys her immense oeuvre in unmatched depth. Writing from a uniquely intimate perspective, as a close personal friend of Bourgeois, and drawing on decades of research, Robert Storr critically evaluates her achievements and reveals the 5/5(3).

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo-"earth", -metron "measurement") is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer.

Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a practical way for dealing with lengths. This book portrays drawing as an instrument of knowledge: an absolute experience, not merely an intermediate phase in the production of a painting.

Anna Ottani Cavina leads us to modernity, which through the rarefaction of the image, silence, and emptiness attained heights of emotional and intellectual intensity that drawing was able to capture. This unique book gives an informal introduction into the non-Euclidean geometries through a series of dialogues between a somewhat grown-up Alice (of Looking Glass fame), her uncle Lewis Carroll, and a visitor from the twentieth century, Dr Geometries book.

Geometries definition, the branch of mathematics that deals with the deduction of the properties, measurement, and relationships of points, lines, angles, and figures in space from their defining conditions by means of certain assumed properties of space.

The first part covers such topics as Galois geometries, Steiner systems, Circle geometry and applications to algebraic coding theory. In mathematics, non-Euclidean geometry consists of two geometries based on axioms closely related to those specifying Euclidean Euclidean geometry lies at the intersection of metric geometry and affine geometry, non-Euclidean geometry arises when either the metric requirement is relaxed, or the parallel postulate is replaced with an alternative one.

Non-Euclidean geometry, literally any geometry that is not the same as Euclidean geometry. Although the term is frequently used to refer only to hyperbolic geometry, common usage includes those few geometries (hyperbolic and spherical) that differ from but are very close to Euclidean geometry (see.

This book is an account of the combinatorics of projective spaces over a finite field, with special emphasis on one and two dimensions.

With its successor volumes, Finite projective spaces over three dimensions (), which is devoted to three dimensions, and General Galois geometries (), on a general dimension, it provides the only comprehensive treatise on this area of mathematics.4/5(1).

Geometry, the branch of mathematics concerned with the shape of individual objects, spatial relationships among various objects, and the properties of surrounding is one of the oldest branches of mathematics, having arisen in response to such practical problems as those found in surveying, and its name is derived from Greek words meaning “Earth measurement.”.

This book is devoted to the theory of geometries which are locally Euclidean, in the sense that in small regions they are identical to the geometry of the Euclidean plane or Euclidean 3-space. Starting from the simplest examples, we proceed to develop a general theory of such geometries, based on.This textbook offers a geometric perspective on special relativity, bridging Euclidean space, hyperbolic space, and Einstein’s spacetime in one self-contained volume.

The author explores Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, so undergraduates can build steadily from intuitive to abstract spaces.Endorsements.

Robin Evans, in his brilliant (sadly posthumous) book The Projective Cast, explores some of the properties of intersecting arcs, flying lines and similar triangles in a series of essays which work both as an introduction to a range of geometries, and as impressively well-informed accounts of episodes in cultural explanations of the geometries are captivating.
