About the Authors
  • Geometry is central to many branches of mathematics and physics, and offers a complete range of views on the universe. This introduction includes many simple explanations and examples. With minimal prerequisites, the book provides a first glimpse of many research topics in modern algebra, geometry and theoretical physics. The book is based on many years' teaching experience, and is thoroughly class-tested. There are copious illustrations, and each chapter ends with exercises. Further teaching material is available via the web, including assignable problem sheets with solutions.

    • Exercises and practical illustrations introduce topics across maths and its applications
    • Prerequisites are minimal: ideally suited to beginner courses and newcomers to the subject
    • Further teaching material is available for teachers, including assignable problem sheets with solutions
