About this book


This book offers a concrete and accessible treatment of Euclidean, projective and hyperbolic geometry, with more stress on topological aspects than is found in most textbooks. The author's purpose is to introduce students to geometry on the basis of elementary concepts in linear algebra, group theory, and metric spaces, and to deepen their understanding of these topics in the process. A large number of exercises and problems is included, some of which introduce new topics.
