A Gateway to Modern Geometry: The Poincaré Half-plane

Front Cover
Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 2008 - Mathematics - 255 pages
Stahl's Second Edition continues to provide students with the elementary and constructive development of modern geometry that brings them closer to current geometric research. At the same time, repeated use is made of high school geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus, thus reinforcing the students' understanding of these disciplines as well as enhancing their perception of mathematics as a unified endeavor. This distinct approach makes these advanced geometry principles accessible to undergraduates and graduates alike.

About the author (2008)

Dr. Stahl's research area is graph theory and his mathematical avocation is the evolution of mathematical ideas. He has published several textbooks in geometry, algebra, analysis and game theory. In all of these books the histrory of the subject is an integral part of the development of the subject matter. He has three children and his hobbies are dance and languages.
