Non-Euclidean Geometry
Introduction: Unlike other branches of math, geometry has been connected with two purposes since the ancient Greeks. Not only is it an intellectual discipline, but also, it has been considered an accurate description of our physical space. However in order to talk about the different types of geometries, we must not confuse the term geometry with how physical space really works. Geometry was devised for practical purposes such as constructions, and land surveying. Ancient Greeks, such as Pythagoras (around 500 BC) used geometry, but the various geometric rules that were being passed down and inherited were not well connected. So around 300 BC, Euclid was studying geometry in Alexandria and wrote a thirteen-volume book that compiled all the known and accepted rules of geometry called The Elements, and later referred to as Euclid’s Elements. Because math was a science where every theorem is based on accepted assumptions, Euclid first had to establish some axioms with which to use as the basis of other theorems. He used five axioms as the 5 assumptions, which he needed to prove all other geometric ideas. The use and assumption of these five axioms is what it means for something to be categorized as Euclidean geometry, which is obviously named after Euclid, who literally wrote the book on geometry. The first four of his axioms are fairly straightforward and easy to accept, and no mathematician has ever seriously doubted them. The first four of Euclid’s axioms are:

These started with some figures to demonstrate the transformations of Inversive Geometry, and progressed to figures for the Arbelos, the inversors of Peucellier and Hart, Coaxial Circles and so on, much of which was driven by the discovery of a Dover edition of a small pearl of a book Advanced Euclidean Geometry (Modern Geometry) An elementary Treatise on the Geometry of the triangle and the Circle (to give its full title) written by Roger A. Johnson and first published in 1929. It had languished on my bookshelves, having been bought years ago for 20 cents (South African) in some sale or other. I can recommend it as a fascinating read, or just for taking in the breathtaking complexity of the many hand crafted diagrams to be found on its pages.

Seminar on the History of Hyperbolic Geometry
Greg Schreiber
In this course we traced the development of hyperbolic (non-Euclidean) geometry from ancient Greece up to the turn of the century. This was accomplished by focusing chronologically on those mathematicians who made the most significant contributions to the subject. We began with an exposition of Euclidean geometry, first from Euclid's perspective (as given in his Elements) and then from a modern perspective due to Hilbert (in his Foundations of Geometry). Almost all criticisms of Euclid up to the 19th century were centered on his fifth postulate, the so-called Parallel Postulate.The first half of the course dealt with various attempts by ancient, medieval, and (relatively) modern mathematicians to prove this postulate from Euclid's others. Some of the most noteworthy efforts were by the Roman mathematician Proclus, the Islamic mathematicians Omar Khayyam and Nasir al-Din al-Tusi, the Jesuit priest Girolamo Sacchieri, the Englishman John Wallis, and the Frenchmen Lambert and Legendre. Each one gave a flawed proof of the parallel postulate, containing some hidden assumption equivalent to that postulate. In this way properties of hyperbolic geometry were discovered, even though no one believed such a geometry to be possible. References: Four general references were used throughout this course: Bonola's Non-Euclidean Geometry, Jeremy Gray's Ideas of Space, Greenberg's Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometries, and McCleary's Geometry from a Differential Viewpoint. In addition, original works of these mathematicians were used whenever possible, as well as biographies of them. These books included Euclid's Elements, Hilbert's Foundations of Geometry, Proclus's A Commentary on the First Book of Euclid's Elements, Saccheri's Euclid Vindicated, Bolyai's Science of Absolute Space, Lobachevskii's Geometrical Researches in the Theory of Parallels, and Riemann's "On the Hypotheses Which Lie at the Foundations of Geometry," among others.

A Plea in Defense of Euclidean Geometry
The following appeared in the Friday, February 6, 1998 issue of the Los Angeles Times.
  • Math education: Fewer classes require proofsmore whittling away of
    exposure to logic and critical thinking.
By BARRY SIMON While I grew up in snow country, I can't tell my kids that I trudged miles through snow to get to school. But I can tell them I learned proofs in high school geometry, which could become as much a part of a vanished virtuous past. One of the pleasures of being on the faculty at Caltech is interacting with our bright undergraduates. For the past two years, I've asked the incoming freshmen in my calculus/probability class whether they had proofs in their high school geometry course. About 40% have not, and more than half of the remainder had at best a cursory few weeks. So less than one-third have had the kind of rigorous theorem/proof course I had back in James Madison High School in Brooklyn more than 30 years ago. Why do I mourn this loss of what was a core part of education for centuries? After all, we no longer require Greek and Latin in high school and Euclid was just one of those Greeks, wasn't he? While the geometric intuition that comes from the classical high school geometry course is significant, what is really important is the exposure to clear and rigorous arguments. Modern mathematicians don't use the two-column proofs so beloved by my high school geometry teachers, and real life rarely needs the precise rigor of mathematicians, but those who have survived those darned dual columns understand something about argumentation and logic. They can more readily see through the faulty reasoning so often presented in the media and by politicians.

1. To draw a straight line from any point to any point.
2. To produce a finite straight line continuously in a straight line.
3. To describe a circle with any centre and distance.
4. That all right angles are equal to one another.
5. That, if a straight line falling on two straight lines make the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles.
Some definitions from the same source:
1. A point is that which has no part.
2. A line is breadthless length.
3. The extremities of a line are points 4. A straight line is a line which lies evenly with the the points on itself. 5. A plane angle is the inclination to one another of two lines in a plane which meet one another and do not lie in a straight line. 6. When a straight line set up on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of the equal angles is right Common Notions 1. Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another.

Non-Euclidean Geometry
Geomview supports hyperbolic and spherical geometry as well as Euclidean geometry. The three buttons at the bottom of the Main panel are for setting the current geometry type. In each of the three geometries, three models are supported: Virtual Projective , and Conformal . You can change the current model with the Model browser on the Camera panel. Each Geomview camera has its own model setting. The default model is all three spaces is Virtual . This corresponds to the camera being in the same space as, and moving under the same set of transformations as, the geometry itself. In Euclidean space Virtual is the most useful model. The other models were implemented for hyperbolic and spherical spaces and just happen to work in Eucldiean space as well: Projective is the same as Virtual but by default displays the unit sphere, and Conformal displays everything inverted in the unit sphere. In hyperbolic space, the Projective model setting gives a view of the projective ball model of hyperbolic 3-space imbedded in Euclidean space. The camera is initially outside the unit ball. In this model, the camera moves by Euclidean motions and geometry moves by hyperbolic motions. Conformal model is similar but shows the conformal ball model instead.

Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometries: Development and History > Customer Review #1: A real mind stretcher.

The first edition of this book is the one that I learned Non-Euclidean geometry from and I have always had fond memories of the course. I took it as an independent study, and chose to do all I could on my own, seeking help only when absolutely necessary. It was a time of fascination, as I was often astonished at the results and how they can be applied to the fundamental structure of the universe. The material on the geometry of physical space inspired me to go to the library searching for additional reading material.
This edition is even better than the first, it has many more exercises and projects and the sections on the history of the parallel postulate have been expanded and updated. There is more than enough material for a one-semester course, although you would have to be very selective when culling material, as nearly every page is an element of an essential progression.

Non-Euclidean Geometry > Customer Review #1: The beauty of geometry is captured

Originally published in 1942, this book has lost none of its power in the last half century. It is a commentary on the recent demise of geometry in many curricula that 33 years elapsed between the publication of the fifth and sixth editions. Fortunately, like so many things in the world, trends in mathematics are cyclic, and one can hope that the geometric cycle is on the rise. We in mathematics owe so much to geometry. It is generally conceded that much of the origins of mathematics is due to the simple necessity of maintaining accurate plots in settlements. The only book from the ancient history of mathematics that all mathematicians have heard of is the Elements by Euclid. It is one of the most read books of all time, arguably the only book without a religious theme still in widespread use over 2000 years after the publication of the first edition. The geometry taught in high schools today is with only minor modifications found in the Euclidean classic.

Villard de Honnecourt and Euclidean Geometry
Rue des Caves
n Antiquity, within the Mediterranean basin, and in the West during the Middle Ages, scholars considered mechanics as one of the more noble of human activities, placing it at the confluent of ideal mathematics and the three-dimensional physics of the terrestrial world. From these periods, we have inherited two monumental works of an encyclopedic character that each unite knowledge of built structures, of machines and of nature: namely, the text by the Roman architect, Vitruvius (written c. 33/22 BC), and a manuscript by Villard de Honnecourt, a Picard (a region now situated in northern France), written some 1250 years later. Whereas the mathematical content in Vitruvius' work is relatively easy to discern - because it is explicit in the text - the collection of Villard is much more difficult to understand, consisting essentially of drawings which remain obscure except to those initiated in the same oral tradition prevalent during the thirteenth century. And yet these drawings can be cracked when studied within the larger context of applied mathematics - the practical geometry - from between the first and seventeenth centuries. One perceives, not surprisingly, that the basic geometric knowledge of the medieval architect derives ultimately from the Elements of Euclid.
