Date: 1/11/96 at 16:20:4 From: Rick Cazzato Subject: Taxi-cab geometry I am looking for information on line about taxicab geometry. Have you ever come across any? In addition, could you suggest some good references in a college library? We are trying to prepare out students for the ICTM oral contest on taxicab geometry. Thanks, Rick Cazzato

Here are a couple of references: Krause, Eugene F. Taxicab Geometry - An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry Stillman, G.A. (1992). Taxicab geometry: the urban alternative. Teaching Mathematics, 17(2), 13-16. Hope this helps - -Doctor Sarah, The Geometry Forum
