About the Authors
  • Projective geometry is not only a jewel of mathematics, but has also many applications in modern information and communication science. This book presents the foundations of classical projective and affine geometry as well as its important applications in coding theory and cryptography. It also could serve as a first acquaintance with diagram geometry. Written in clear and contemporary language with an entertaining style and around 200 exercises, examples and hints, this book is ideally suited to be used as a textbook for study in the classroom or on its own.

    • Many courses for this type of material
    • Interesting applications to cryptography and coding
    • Each chapter has exercises (approx. 200 in total) and a summary of key concepts
