Giotto di Bondone (–) is credited with first treating a painting as a window into space, but it was not until the demonstrations of architect Filippo Brunelleschi (– ) and the subsequent writings of Leon Battista Alberti (– ) that perspective was formalized as an artistic technique.

    This textbook demonstrates the excitement and beauty of geometry. The approach is that of Klein in his Erlangen programme: a geometry is a space together with a set of transformations of that space. The authors explore various geometries: affine, projective, inversive, non-Euclidean and spherical. In each case the key results are explained carefully, and the relationships between the /5(3). Certainly, two were to be produced. One, projective geometry, amplified and improved the synthetic side of geometry. The other, non-Euclidean geometry, was a new and challenging metrical geometry. But before we look at them, we turn to contemporary philosophical discussions of geometry. 2. Epistemological issues in applied geometry.

Motivation. Point-free geometry was first formulated in Whitehead (, ), not as a theory of geometry or of spacetime, but of "events" and of an "extension relation" between ead's purposes were as much philosophical as scientific and mathematical.

Whitehead did not set out his theories in a manner that would satisfy present-day canons of formality. Following up on his two previous works, The Principles of Natural Knowledge and The Concept of Nature, Whitehead explains his alternative theory of relativity, which "cuts away the casual heterogeneity" of Einstein's later theory.

Dividing his book into three parts--General Principles, Physical Applications, and Elementary Theory of Tensors--the author's arguments and observations utilize his.
