Topics in elementary geometry

By: Bottema, O.
Publisher: New York Springer Science+Business Media 2008Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xii, 142 p.ISBN: 9780387781303.Subject(s): Geometry | Plane | Geometry - Problems | exercisesDDC classification: 516.22 Summary: This small book has for a long time been a unique place to find classical results from geometry, such as Pythagoras' theorem, the nine-point circle, Morley's triangle, Poncelet's polygons, and many other subjects. In addition, this book contains recent, geometric theorems which have been obtained in this classical field over the past years. There are 27 independent chapters on a wide range of topics in elementary plane Euclidean geometry, at a level just beyond what is usually taught in a good high school or college geometry course. The selection of topics is intelligent, varied, and stimulating. In a small space the author provides many thought-provoking ideas. This book will fit in well with the increasing interest for geometry in research and education. This book was originally published in Dutch, and this will be the first English translation.
