|Divine Proportions describes a new way of thinking about trigonometry and Euclidean geometry. It shows how to develop both subjects in a completely algebraic, or rational, way, without any need for transcendental concepts or functions. As a result the entire theory generalizes to arbitrary fields. Somewhat surprisingly, applications can be tackled with greater speed and accuracy.|
