By Julian Lowell Coolidge

Full and authoritative, this heritage of the concepts for facing geometric questions starts with artificial geometry and its origins in Babylonian and Egyptian arithmetic; studies the contributions of China, Japan, India, and Greece; and discusses the non-Euclidean geometries. next sections disguise algebraic geometry, beginning with the precursors and advancing to the nice awakening with Descartes; and differential geometry, from the early paintings of Huygens and Newton to projective and absolute differential geometry. The author's emphasis on proofs and notations, his comparisons among older and more recent tools, and his references to over six hundred fundamental and secondary resources make this ebook a useful reference. 1940 edition.

Fibrewise Homotopy Theory (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

Topology occupies a important place in glossy arithmetic, and the idea that of the fibre package offers a suitable framework for learning differential geometry. Fibrewise homotopy conception is a really huge topic that has attracted a great deal of study lately. This ebook offers an outline of the topic because it stands at the present.

The Glorious Golden Ratio

What precisely is the Golden Ratio? How used to be it came upon? the place is it came across? those questions and extra are completely defined during this attractive journey of 1 of arithmetic' finest phenomena. The authors  trace the looks of the Golden Ratio all through heritage, reveal various creative recommendations used to build it, and illustrate the numerous remarkable geometric figures during which the Golden Ratio is embedded.

Computational Geometry in C (Cambridge Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science)

This is often the revised and elevated 1998 version of a favored creation to the layout and implementation of geometry algorithms coming up in parts resembling special effects, robotics, and engineering layout. the elemental strategies utilized in computational geometry are all coated: polygon triangulations, convex hulls, Voronoi diagrams, preparations, geometric looking out, and movement making plans.

The Role of Products of the Histocompatibility Gene Complex in Immune Responses

The position of goods of the Histocompatibility Gene advanced in Immune Responses records the lawsuits of a convention hung on 3-7 November 1975, which introduced jointly a global crew of scientists spanning 3 autonomous disciplines—genetics and immunogenetics, molecular biochemistry, and immunobiology—with medical medication overlapping those disciplines.
