In Euclidean geometry, buildings are made with ruler and compass. Projective geometry is less complicated: its structures require just a ruler. In projective geometry one by no means measures something, as an alternative, one relates one set of issues to a different through a projectivity. the 1st chapters of this ebook introduce the $64000 options of the topic and supply the logical foundations. The 3rd and fourth chapters introduce the well-known theorems of Desargues and Pappus. Chapters five and six utilize projectivities on a line and airplane, repectively. the subsequent 3 chapters increase a self-contained account of von Staudt's method of the speculation of conics. the fashionable technique utilized in that improvement is exploited in bankruptcy 10, which offers with the best finite geometry that's wealthy sufficient to demonstrate all of the theorems nontrivially. The concluding chapters convey the connections between projective, Euclidean, and analytic geometry.
