Across the Rhine — Möbius’s Algebraic Version of Projective Geometry

Part of the Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series book series (SUMS)


In 1827 Möbius published his Der barycentrische Calcul [162] or The Barycentric Calculus.1 The word “barycentre” means centre of gravity, but the book is not about mechanics but geometry. It is most concerned with, and is best remembered for, introducing a new system of coordinates, the barycentric coordinates.
