This lucid and accessible text provides an introductory guide to projective geometry, an area of mathematics concerned with the properties and invariants of geometric figures under projection. Including numerous worked examples and exercises throughout, the book covers axiomatic geometry, field planes and PG(r, F), coordinating a projective plane, non-Desarguesian planes, conics and . This book is an introduction to both aspects, the algebraic and differential one. Starting from very elementary facts, the necessary techniques are developed, especially concerning Grassmannians and fundamental forms in a version suitable for complex projective algebraic geometry.

In this introduction to commutative algebra, the author choses a route that leads the reader through the essential ideas, without getting embroiled in technicalities. He takes the reader quickly to the fundamentals of complex projective geometry, requiring only a basic knowledge of linear and Price: $ [Introduction To Projective Geometry, C.R. Wylie] make it possible to prove Desargues' theorem from a two dimensional perspective. Coexter and Whitehead also set up different systems of axioms for projective geometry which allow the result to be proved. Some authors [Projective Geometry, Finite and Infinite, Brendan Hassett.

The book is still going strong after 55 years, and the gap between its first appearance in and Introduction to Projective Geometry in may be the longest period of time between the publication of two books by the same author in the history of the Dover mathematics program/5(9). 1.

In particular, it explains how metric concepts may be best understood in projective terms. One of the major themes that appears throughout this book is the beauty of the interplay between. Projective geometry is one of the most fundamental and at the same time most beautiful branches of geometry.

It can be considered the common foundation of many other geometric disciplines like Euclidean geometry, hyperbolic and elliptic geometry or even relativistic space-time geometry.

This lucid and accessible text provides an introductory guide to projective geometry, an area of mathematics concerned with the properties and invariants of geometric figures under projection.

Including numerous worked examples and exercises throughout, the book covers axiomatic geometry, field planes and PG(r, F), coordinatising a projective plane, non-Desarguesian planes, conics and quadrics. This analytical approach concludes with linear transformations and an introduction to group theory that supports investigation of the projective group and its subgroups.

This portion includes such fundamentals of projective geometry as the Theorems of Desargues and Pappus. The next three chapters are the second major portion of the book. A first look at Projective Geometry, starting with Pappus' theorem, Desargues theorem and a fundamental relation between quadrangles and quadrilaterals.
