A simple nonEuclidean geometry and its physical basis : an elementary account of Galilean geometry and the Galilean principle
of relativity by
I. M I︠A︡glom(
Book
)
34 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in 4 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are many technical and popular accounts, both in Russian and in other languages, of the nonEuclidean geometry of Lobachevsky and Bolyai, a few of which are listed in the Bibliography. This geometry, also called hyperbolic geometry, is part of the required subject matter of many mathematics departments in universities and teachers' collegesa reflec tion of the view that familiarity with the elements of hyperbolic geometry is a useful part of the background of future high school teachers. Much attention is paid to hyperbolic geometry by school mathematics clubs. Some mathematicians and educators concerned with reform of the high school curriculum believe that the required part of the curriculum should include elements of hyperbolic geometry, and that the optional part of the curriculum should include a topic related to hyperbolic geometry. I The broad interest in hyperbolic geometry is not surprising. This interest has little to do with mathematical and scientific applications of hyperbolic geometry, since the applications (for instance, in the theory of automorphic functions) are rather specialized, and are likely to be encountered by very few of the many students who conscientiously study (and then present to examiners) the definition of parallels in hyperbolic geometry and the special features of configurations of lines in the hyperbolic plane. The principal reason for the interest in hyperbolic geometry is the important fact of "nonuniqueness" of geometry; of the existence of many geometric systems

Induction in geometry by
L. I Golovina(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1963 and 1979 in 4 languages and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This booklet, Induction in Geometry, is devoted to various applications of the method of mathematical induction to the solution of geometric problems, some of which are rather intricate. It may be thought of as a sequel to The Method of Mathematical Induction, by I.S. Sominskii, also in this series. For most sections of the present booklet, a background of high school algebra and geometry will be sufficient

Geometric transformations II by
I. M I︠A︡glom(
Book
)
94 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
“This book is the sequel to Geometric Transformations I which appeared in this series in 1962. Part I treats lengthpreserving transformations, this volume treats shapepreserving transformations; and Part III treats affine and protective transformations. These classes of transformations play a fundamental role in the grouptheoretic approach to geometry. As in the previous volume, the treatment is direct and simple. The introduction of each new idea is supplemented by problems whose solutions employ the idea just presented, and whose detailed solutions are given in the second half of the book.” – Publisher’s description
