This fine and versatile introduction to non-Euclidean geometry is appropriate for both high-school and college classes. Its first two-thirds requires just a familiarity with plane and solid geometry and trigonometry, and calculus is employed only in the final part. It begins with the theorems common to Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, and then it addresses the specific differences that constitute elliptic and hyperbolic geometry. Major topics include hyperbolic geometry, single elliptic geometry, and analytic non-Euclidean geometry. 1901 edition.
