Geometry revisited by H. S. M Coxeter( Book )

47 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chief purpose of this book is to revisit those regions of elementary geometry that were enjoyed by our ancestors, making use of the idea of transformations: an idea that facilitates geometric understanding and links the subject with other branches of mathematics. In particular, Chapter 5 introduces the reader to inversive geometry, which has an important application to analysis, and Chapter 6 introduces conics with special emphasis on the notions of focus and eccentricity, notions obviously relevant to the study of orbits of comets, planets, and satellites. The early chapters take the reader by easy stages from very simple ideas to the core of the subject. The problems throughout the book contain extensions of the text as well as challenges to the reader
International Mathematical Olympiads, 1959-1977 by Samuel L Greitzer( Book )

33 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every year 100 of the most mathematically talented high school students in the country compete in the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). The USAMO is the third stage of a three-tiered mathematical competition for high school students in the United States and Canada that begins with the AHSME taken by over 400,000 students, continues with the American Invitational Mathematics Exam involving 2,000 students, and culminates with the 100-contestant USAMO. Winners of the USAMO go on to compete in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Compilation of 116 problems of arresting ingenuity given to high school students competing in the International Mathematical Olympiads. All are accessible to secondary school students. The alternative solutions are particularly interesting because they show that there are many ways to solve a problem

Geometry revisited by H. S. M oxeter( )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the many beautiful and nontrivial theorems in geometry found here are the theorems of Ceva, Menelaus, Pappus, Desargues, Pascal, and Brianchon. A nice proof is given of Morley's remarkable theorem on angle trisectors. The transformational point of view is emphasized: reflections, rotations, translations, similarities, inversions, and affine and projective transformations. Many fascinating properties of circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and conics are developed
