Geometry II by Marcel Berger

By Marcel Berger

This is often the second one a part of the 2-volume textbook Geometry which gives a really readable and full of life presentation of enormous elements of geometry within the classical experience. an enticing attribute of the booklet is that it appeals systematically to the reader's instinct and imaginative and prescient, and illustrates the mathematical textual content with many figures. for every subject the writer provides a theorem that's esthetically enjoyable and simply acknowledged - even if the facts of an identical theorem could be really tough and hid. Many open difficulties and references to trendy literature are given. another robust trait of the publication is that it presents a complete and unified reference resource for the sector of geometry within the complete breadth of its subfields and ramifications.

It is a copy of a booklet released earlier than 1923. This e-book can have occasional imperfections equivalent to lacking or blurred pages, negative photos, errant marks, and so on. that have been both a part of the unique artifact, or have been brought through the scanning approach. We think this paintings is culturally very important, and regardless of the imperfections, have elected to carry it again into print as a part of our carrying on with dedication to the renovation of published works around the globe.
