# 1830-1930: A Century of Geometry by L. Boi, D. Flament, Jean-Michel Salanskis

By L. Boi, D. Flament, Jean-Michel Salanskis

Within the first 1/2 the nineteenth century geometry replaced considerably, and withina century it helped to revolutionize either arithmetic and physics. It additionally positioned the epistemology and the philosophy of technology on a brand new footing. In this quantity a legitimate assessment of this improvement is given through prime mathematicians, physicists, philosophers, and historians of technology. This interdisciplinary strategy offers this assortment a distinct personality. it may be utilized by scientists and scholars, however it additionally addresses a basic readership.

This quantity serves as an extension of excessive school-level experiences of geometry and algebra, and proceeds to extra complex subject matters with an axiomatic procedure. comprises an introductory bankruptcy on projective geometry, then explores the kin among the elemental theorems; higher-dimensional area; conics; coordinate platforms and linear ameliorations; quadric surfaces; and the Jordan canonical shape.
