Neutral and Non-Euclidean Geometries
by David C. Royster
Publisher: UNC Charlotte 2000
Number of pages: 145
In this course you are introduced, or re-introduced, to the method of Mathematical Proof. You will be introduced to new and interesting areas in Geometry, with most of the time spent on the study of Hyperbolic Geometry. We will learn one of the Fundamental Theorems of Mathematics that many students never get to see.

Renowned for its lucid yet meticulous exposition, this text follows the development of non-Euclidean geometry from a fundamental analysis of the concept of parallelism to such advanced topics as inversion and transformations.

The parallel postulate is the only distinctive characteristic of Euclid. To pronounce upon its validity and general philosophical significance without endeavoring to know what Non-Euclideans have done would be an inexcusable blunder ...

This book gives a simple and direct account of the Non-Euclidean Geometry, and one which presupposes but little knowledge of Mathematics. The entire book can be read by one who has taken the mathematical courses commonly given in our colleges.
