Geometry BooksDate: 4/17/96 at 20:58:30 From: "DuVal Q. Hicks, Jr." Subject: Goemetry I am interested to learn about geometry. However I am having trouble finding an instructive book on geometry. Do you have any suggestions? Date: 4/19/96 at 3:4:57 From: Doctor Jodi Subject: Re: Goemetry Hi there! Some books by Coxeter on geometry have come highly recommended, as has a book called _Geometry and the Imagination_. I haven't really used these myself, so I'm not sure how difficult they are... You might also be interested in going back to Euclid's ELEMENTS and reading non-Euclidean geometry by Lobachevski and so on... Good luck! -Doctor Jodi, The Math Forum |
