Extractions: Geometry is the branch of mathematics dealing with spatial relationships. From experience, or possibly intuitively, people characterize space by certain fundamental qualities, which are termed axioms in geometry. Such axioms are insusceptible of proof, but can be used in conjunction with mathematical definitions for points straight lines curves surfaces , and solids to draw logical conclusions. Because of its immediate practical applications, geometry was one of the first branches of mathematics to be developed. Likewise, it was the first field to be put on an axiomatic basis, by Euclid . The Greeks were interested in many questions about ruler-and-compass constructions . The next most significant development had to wait until a millennium later, and that was analytic geometry , in which coordinate systems are introduced and points are represented as ordered pairs or triples of numbers. This sort of representation has since then allowed us to construct new geometries other than the standard Euclidean version. The central notion in geometry is that of congruence . In Euclidean geometry , two figures are said to be congruent if they are related by a series of reflections rotations , and translations Other geometries can be constructed by choosing a new underlying space to work with (Euclidean geometry uses Euclidean space R n ) or by choosing a new group of transformations to work with (Euclidean geometry uses the inhomogeneous orthogonal transformations, E(n)). The latter point of view is called the
Extractions: (first posted to the web in 1995) jump to: outline of paper text of paper suggestions for further study bibliography ... anchor here Bibliography This is a paper I wrote in college for a History of Science course (although I've taken the liberty of modifying it slightly from time to time since I put it online). I know it's not publishable or anything, but it's still one of my favorite papers because it was so difficult to do. (I wrote it on a computer with about 12K of free RAM and only a cassette tape drive for storage!) In fact, the whole History of Science course was quite an experience. Students wishing to use this paper for their own reports on Euclid should know how to avoid plagiarism and how to cite online sources . In addition, I urge students to seek out the original printed sources yes, that means going to the library and not rely merely on what I say in this paper. (I'm always surprised by the number of junior high and high school students who e-mail me saying they can't find any information about Euclid!) Note that is used to denote square roots and all Greek letters used as symbols ( alpha beta , ...) are spelled out. Superscripts are implemented by using the appropriate HTML tags and may not display properly in some browsers. In this case, hopefully the meaning will be clear from the context.

Extractions: Welcome to the VRML Geometry Teacher. The VGT was created in order to help Geometry students learn. One of the problems of traditional geometry is that the book is in 2-D. This impairs many students abilities to understand 3-Dimentional concepts. By actually seeing the figures in 3-D students should be able to understand them better. Below in each of the frames is a 3-D representation of a geometric figure. You can spin them, walk around them, or just let them rotate.

Extractions: ISBN: 3-540-65620-0 You can order the book here This textbook on computational geometry has 367 pages. The pages are almost square with a large margin containing over 370 figures. To get an idea about the style and format, take a look at the Introduction or chapter 7 on Voronoi diagrams Computational geometry emerged from the field of algorithms design and analysis in the late 1970s. It has grown into a recognized discipline with its own journals, conferences, and a large community of active researchers. The success of the field as a research discipline can on the one hand be explained from the beauty of the problems studied and the solutions obtained, and, on the other hand, by the many application domains-computer graphics, geographic information systems (GIS), robotics, and others-in which geometric algorithms play a fundamental role. For many geometric problems the early algorithmic solutions were either slow or difficult to understand and implement. In recent years a number of new algorithmic techniques have been developed that improved and simplified many of the previous approaches. In this textbook we have tried to make these modern algorithmic solutions accessible to a large audience. The book has been written as a textbook for a course in computational geometry, but it can also be used for self study.
