A Geometrical Picture Book (Universitext) by Burkard Polster

By Burkard Polster

How do you show in your scholars, colleagues and acquaintances the various great thing about the type of arithmetic you're passionate about? while you're a mathematician attracted to finite or topological geometry and combinatorial designs, you may begin via displaying them many of the (400+) images within the "picture book". photographs are what this e-book is all approximately; unique photos of everybody's favourite geometries reminiscent of configurations, projective planes and areas, circle planes, generalized polygons, mathematical biplanes and different designs which trap a lot of the sweetness, development rules, particularities, substructures and interconnections of those geometries. the extent of the textual content is appropriate for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars. no matter if you're a mathematician who simply desires a few attention-grabbing examining you are going to benefit from the author's very unique and finished guided journey of small finite geometries and geometries on surfaces This guided travel contains plenty of sterograms of the spatial versions, video games and puzzles and directions on tips on how to build your personal photographs and construct a number of the spatial types yourself.
