On the Euclidean plane, place a sphere so that its south pole O is at the origin. Let J be the north pole. For any point Q ≠ J on the sphere, the point P of intersection of the extension of OQ.   Overall, I found the chapter that introduces inversive geometry particularly enjoyable; it includes a metric for inversive distance that relates very nicely to Steiner’s porism. As for the book’s final chapter, the approach to projective geometry is synthetic and perhaps, to quote an English saying, ‘not everyone’s cup of tea’.

CHAPTER 13 INTRODUCTION TO INVERSIVE GEOMETRY Inversion in the Euclidean Plane We introduce the concept of inversion with a simple example, that of constructing the midpoint of a line - Selection from Classical Geometry: Euclidean, Transformational, Inversive, and Projective [Book]. Introduction to Inversive geometry. The notion (second-order structure) of circle or sphere can also be equivalently expressed as the 4-ary relation of circularity, (the relation between 4 points saying they belong to the same circle or straight line) suffices to define angles of intersection, for the following intuitive reason.

This richly illustrated and clearly written undergraduate textbook captures the excitement and beauty of geometry. The approach is that of Klein in his Erlangen programme: a geometry is a space together with a set of transformations of the space.

Based on classical principles, this book is intended for a second course in Euclidean geometry and can be used as a refresher. Each chapter covers a different aspect of Euclidean geometry, lists relevant theorems and corollaries, and states and proves many propositions.

Inversive geometry is richer than Mobius geometry since all three of these mappings fall in its reach.

Many sources that I have found seem a little old, however. I have two related questions: The wiki page (linked above) suggests that there are various problems in geometry which are known to be solvable using inversive geometry. follow from elementary geometry: Suppose µ is a line not running through O as in Figure 3.

We want to show that the image of µ under T is a circle containing O. If we draw the perpendicular OA to µ, we can ﬁnd the image A0 = T(A). Then, we consider the circle with diameter OA0 and show that any point P on µ maps to this circle.

Abstract. Euclidean geometry deals mainly with points and straight lines. Its basic transformation is the reflection, which leaves fixed all the points on one line and interchanges certain pairs of points on opposite sides of this “mirror”.All other isometries (or “congruent transformations” or “motions”) are expressible in terms of reflections.Classical Geometry Euclidean, Transformational, Inversive, and Projective 1st Edition (PDF eBook)Price: \$Rational Trigonometry Site.

These pages will attempt to provide an overview of Rational Trigonometry and how it allows us to reformulate spherical and elliptic geometries, hyperbolic geometry, and inversive geometry, and leads to the new theory of chromogeometry, along with many practical applications.
