Deductive Geometry

£7.99

Product description

"The aim of this book is to give, in concise form, the whole of the geometry of the straight line, circle, plane and sphere, with their associated configurations such as triangle or cylinder, in so far as it is likely to be required for courses in mathematics in the United Kingdom for the G.C.E. at Advanced and Scholarship levels, or for corresponding courses throughout the Commonwealth as required by the appropriate examining boards. The book will be of value also to university undergraduates.

This is a subject which, at the moment of writing, is less popular than it deserves, but I hope that the treatment may help to simulate interest as well as to satisfy an existing need.

The plan of the book is straightforward; recapitulation of known work, advanced plane geometry, solid geometry with some reference to the geometry of the sphere, a chapter on the nature of space with reference to such properties as congruence, similarity and symmetry, and, finally, a very brief account of the elementary transformations of projection and inversion.

The book is interspersed with a number of examples. Bearing in mind the need for brevity, a number of these are actually standard results which the reader is invited to prove for himself. Such examples are headed 'Theorems'."

Book pages are in very good condition and appear unmarked. Page edges show some dirt.
Book cover has some wear to the edges and has some dirt, but is otherwise intact.
There is small ink inscription on the inside front page.
