About this Textbook

This book offers a concrete and accessible treatment of Euclidean, projective and hyperbolic geometry, with more stress on topological aspects than is found in most textbooks. The author's purpose is to introduce students to geometry on the basis of elementary concepts in linear algebra, group theory, and metric spaces, and to deepen their understanding of these topics in the process. A large number of exercises and problems is included, some of which introduce new topics.

Reviews

From the Reviews: "This book is meant to fill a certain gap in the literature. Namely, it treats the classical topics of Euclidean, projective and hyperbolic geometry using the modern language of linear algebra, group theory, metric spaces and elementary complex analysis. In each of those geometries the main constructions are fully explained and the reader can check his understanding with the sets of problems included. The mixture of classical and modern material which is so difficult to find in the textbooks nowadays makes of this nice little book an enjoyable and profitable reading."
A. Dimca, Revue Roumaine de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (No. 5/1985)
