Non-Euclidean Geometry: A Critical And Historical Study Of Its Development

Roberto Bonola

Chicago Open Court Pub. Co | 1912


PDF - 11,2 Mb

Examines various attempts to prove Euclid's parallel postulate — by the Greeks, Arabs and Renaissance mathematicians. Ranging through the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, it considers forerunners and founders such as Saccheri, Lambert, Legendre, W. Bolyai, Gauss, Schweikart, Taurinus, J. Bolyai and Lobachewsky. Includes 181 diagrams.
