Book Description
Euclid was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In it, the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry were deduced from a small set of axioms. Euclid also wrote works on perspective, conic sections, spherical geometry, number theory and rigor.

Men of Mathematics: Great Mathematicians from Zeno to Poincaré
This book provides a rich account of major mathematical milestones, from the geometry of the Greeks through Newton’s calculus, and on to the laws of probability, symbolic logic, and the fourth dimension.

The Legacy of Felix Klein (HansGeorg Weigand, et al)
This open access book provides an overview of Felix Klein's ideas. It discusses the meaning, importance and the legacy of Klein's ideas today and in the future, within an international, global context.

Paul Lorenzen  Mathematician and Logician (G. Heinzmann, et al)
This open access book examines the many contributions of Paul Lorenzen, an outstanding philosopher from the latter half of the 20th century. It features papers focused on integrating Lorenzen's original approach into the history of logic and mathematics.

A Beautiful Math: John Nash, Game Theory, and a Code of Nature
Today neuroscientists peer into game players brains, anthropologists play games with people from primitive cultures, biologists use games to explain the evolution of human language, and mathematicians exploit games to better understand social networks.

Euclid and His Twentieth Century Rivals (Nathaniel Miller)
Twentiethcentury developments in logic and mathematics have led many people to view Euclid's proofs as inherently informal, especially due to the use of diagrams in proofs. It introduces a diagrammatic computer proof system, based on this formal system.

The Elements of NonEuclidean Geometry (Julian L. Coolidge)
The heroic age of noneuclidean geometry is passed. It is long since the days when Lobatchewsky timidly referred to his system as an 'imaginary geometry', and the new subject appeared as a dangerous lapse from the orthodox doctrine of Euclid.

Euclidean Plane and its Relatives: A Minimalist Introduction
The book is designed for a semesterlong course in Foundations of Geometry and meant to be rigorous, conservative, elementary and minimalist. It promotes the art and the skills of developing logical proofs.

NonEuclidean Geometry: A Critical and Historical Study
This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact, and remains as true to the original work as possible.
