Nineteenth Century Geometry
1. Lobachevskian geometry
Euclid (fl. 300 b.c.) placed at the head of his Elements aitemata 1. To draw a straight line from any point to any point.
3. To draw a circle with any center and any radius. Figure 1
In the darker ages that followed, Euclid's sense of mathematical freedom was lost and philosophers and mathematicians expected geometry to rest on self-evident grounds. Now, if a is perpendicular and b is almost perpendicular to PQ, a and b approach each other very slowly on one side of PQ and it is not self-evident that they must eventually meet somewhere on that side. After all, the hyperbole indefinitely approaches its asymptotes and yet, demonstrably, never meets them. Through the centuries, several authors demanded-and attempted-a proof of Euclid's Postulate. John Wallis (b. 1616, d. 1703) derived it from the assumption that there are polygons of different sizes that have the same shape. But then this assumption needs proof in turn. Girolamo Saccheri (b. 1667, d. 1733) tried reductio . He inferred a long series of propositions from the negation of Euclid's Postulate, until he reached one which he pronounced "repugnant to the nature of the straight line". But Saccheri's understanding of this "nature" was nourished by Euclidean geometry and his conclusion begged the question.

Projective geometry is a beautiful subject which has some remarkable applications beyond those in standard textbooks. These were pointed to by Rudolf Steiner who sought an exact way of working scientifically with aspects of reality which cannot be described in terms of ordinary physical measurements. His colleague George Adams worked out much of this and pointed the way to some remarkable research done by Lawrence Edwards in recent years. Steiner's spiritual research showed that there is another kind of space in which more subtle aspects of reality such as life processes take place. Adams took his descriptions of how this space is experienced and found a way of specifying it geometrically, which is dealt with in the Counter Space Page A brief introduction to the basics of the subject is given in the Basics Page The work of Lawrence Edwards is introduced in the Path Curves Page , and some explorations of his work on further aspects is described in the Pivot Transforms Page . This is mostly pictorial, with reference to documentation. YOU ARE INVITED TO EXPLORE!

Bubble Geometry
Have you ever seen a square bubble?
Experiment with bubbles. Create bubble wands out of found objects (straws, pipe cleaners, strawberry baskets and coathangers) and have your own bubble festival.
How can you catch a bubble?
The secret is the soap solution. Try catching a bubble with a dry hand versus a wet hand. Which lasts longer? This activity is included in the Shapes cluster developed with K-2 teachers at the Ross School in San Francisco. What could you use to make lots of tiny bubbles? How could you measure a bubble? Why do bubbles fall towards the ground?
Soap bubbles are so fun!

    Computational geometry
    Computational geometry emerged from the field of algorithms design and analysis in the late 1970s. It has grown into a recognized discipline with its own journals, conferences, and a large community of active researchers. The success of the field as a research discipline can on the one hand be explained from the beauty of the problems studied and the solutions obtained, and, on the other hand, by the many application domains-computer graphics, geographic information systems (GIS), robotics, and others-in which geometric algorithms play a fundamental role. For many geometric problems the early algorithmic solutions were either slow or difficult to understand and implement. In recent years a number of new algorithmic techniques have been developed that improved and simplified many of the previous approaches. In this textbook we have tried to make these modern algorithmic solutions accessible to a large audience. The book has been written as a textbook for a course in computational geometry, but it can also be used for self study.

    Overview Partners Programme Post-docs Activities Project overview Developing powerful methods taken from geometry to study the arithmetical properties of algebraic equations
    Algebraic equations and their arithmetical properties have interested mankind since antiquity. One has only to think of the works of Pythagoras and Diophantus, which were a milestone in their time. For many centuries such problems have fascinated both serious mathematicians (Fermat, Gauss, ...) and amateurs alike. However, developments in recent years have transformed the subject into one of the central areas of mathematical research, which has relations with, or applications to, virtually every mathematical field, as well as an impact to contemporary everyday life (for example, the use of prime numbers and factorisation for encoding "smart" cards). The classical treatment of equations by analysis and geometry in the realm of complex numbers in this century has found a counterpart, in the similar theories over finite and p -adic fields, which have particular significance for arithmetic questions. The study of certain functions encoding arithmetic information and generalising the Riemann zeta-function (
