A course of geometry for colleges and universities by Daniel Pedoe( Book )

34 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lucid and masterly survey."--Mathematics GazetteProfessor Pedoe is widely known as a fine teacher and a fine geometer. His abilities in both areas are clearly evident in this self-contained, well-written, and lucid introduction to the scope and methods of elementary geometry. It covers the geometry usually included in undergraduate courses in mathematics, except for the theory of convex sets. Based on a course given by the author for several years at the University of Minnesota, the main purpose of the book is to increase geometrical, and therefore mathematical, understanding and to help students enjoy geometry. Among the topics discussed: the use of vectors and their products in work on Desargues' and Pappus' theorem and the nine-point circle; circles and coaxal systems; the representation of circles by points in three dimensions; mappings of the Euclidean plane, similitudes, isometries, mappings of the inversive plane, and Moebius transformations; projective geometry of the plane, space, and n dimensions; the projective generation of conics and quadrics; Moebius tetrahedra; the tetrahedral complex; the twisted cubic curve; the cubic surface; oriented circles; and introduction to algebraic geometry. In addition, three appendices deal with Euclidean definitions, postulates, and propositions; the Grassmann-Pluecker coordinates of lines in S3, and the group of circular transformations. Among the outstanding features of this book are its many worked examples and over 500 exercises to test geometrical understanding

Circles : a mathematical view by Daniel Pedoe( Book )

30 editions published between 1957 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of a mathematical classic originally published in 1957 will bring to a new generation of students the enjoyment of investigating that simplest of mathematical figures, the circle. As a concession to the general neglect of geometry in school and college curricula, however, the author has supplemented this new edition with a chapter 0 designed to introduce readers to the special vocabulary of circle concepts with which the author could assume his readers of two generations ago were familiar. For example, Pedoe carefully explains what is meant by the circumcircle, incircle, and excircles of a triangle as well as the circumcentre, incentre, and otrthocentre. The reader can then understand his discussion in Chapter 1 of the nine-point circle, and of Feuerbach's theorem. As an appendix, Pedoe includes a biographical article by Laura Guggenbuhl on Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach, a little-known mathematician with a tragically short life, who published his theorem in a slender geometric treatise in 1822. Readers of Circles need only be armed with paper, pencil, compass and straightedge to find great pleasure in following the constructions and theorems. Those who think that geometry using Euclidean tools died out with the ancient Greeks will be pleasantly surprised to learn many interesting results which were only discovered in modern time. And those who think that they learned all they needed to know about circles in high school will find much to enlighten them in chapters dealing with the representation of a circle by a point in three-space, a model for non-Euclidean geometry, and isoperimetric property of the circle. -- from back cover

Methods of algebraic geometry by W. V. D Hodge( Book )

This classic work, in three volumes, provides a lucid and rigorous account of the foundations of modern algebraic geometry. The authors have confined themselves to fundamental concepts and geometrical methods, and do not give detailed developments of geometrical properties but geometrical meaning has been emphasized throughout

The gentle art of mathematics by Daniel Pedoe( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in Dutch and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Dan Pedoe uses a variety of practical applications and puzzles in taking a pleasantly light-hearted look at today's mathematical trends. He is comfortable illuminating such dark mysteries as the notion of infinity, the laws of probability and the algebra of classes. Yet he is equally happy clearing up such puzzling side-issues as how to take off your vest without first taking off your jacket, the twelve-coin problem, and what Newton told Pepys about dice-throwing. In nine chapters on an equal number of subjects, the author introduces mathematical games, including the use of the binary system ijn winning at Nim; chance and choice, with a method of calculating your odds of winning; where does it end, including the question - which is larger, the class of all integers or the class of all odd integers; automatic thinking, or mathematical logic; two-way stretch, an introduction to topology; rules of play, or how the laws of algebra work; an accountant's nightmare, with more problems of irrational numbers and infinity; and, double talk, or tricks with logic. Throughout there are a number of practical examples and a number of problems that you can try on your friends. What is more, the problems in the book work closely to give you a good understanding of modern mathematical thought. For those who have finished high school algebra and want to know more about what mathematics has to offer, The Gentle Art of Mathematics will be a good introduction to more advanced study in the field.For those who just want to be entertained or to tease their brains with mathematical problems, this book offers a great amount of material for mental stimulation. -- from back cover
