Tracing the formal development of Euclidean geometry, this text closely follows Euclid's classic,Elements.In addition to providing a historical perspective on plane geometry, it covers related topics, including non-neutral Euclidean geometry, circles and regular polygons, projective geometry, symmetries, inversions, knots and links, and informal topology. Includes 1,000 practice problems. Solutions available. 2003 edition.
