About the Authors
  • This is a reissue of Professor Coxeter's classic text on non-Euclidean geometry. It begins with a historical introductory chapter, and then devotes three chapters to surveying real projective geometry, and three to elliptic geometry. After this the Euclidean and hyperbolic geometries are built up axiomatically as special cases of a more general 'descriptive geometry'. This is essential reading for anybody with an interest in geometry.

    • Coxeter is master expositor
    • Subject is back in vogue
    • Classic text

    Reviews & endorsements

    'No living geometer writes more clearly and beautifully about difficult topics than world famous Professor H. S. M. Coxeter. When non-Euclidean geometry was first developed, it seemed little more than a curiosity with no relevance to the real world. Then to everyone's amazement, it turned out to be essential to Einstein's general theory of relativity! Coxeter's book has remained out of print for too long. Hats off to the MAA for making this classic available once more.' Martin Gardner

    'Coxeter's geometry books are a treasure that should not be lost. I am delighted to see Non-Euclidean Geometry back in print.' Doris Schattschneider
