about

Meyer's Geometry and Its Applications, Second Edition, combines traditional geometry with current ideas to present a modern approach that is grounded in real-world applications. It balances the deductive approach with discovery learning, and introduces axiomatic, Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry. The text integrates applications and examples throughout and includes historical notes in many chapters.

The Second Edition of Geometry and Its Applications is a significant text for any college or university that focuses on geometry's usefulness in other disciplines. It is especially appropriate for engineering and science majors, as well as future mathematics teachers.

  • Realistic applications integrated throughout the text, including (but not limited to):

  • Symmetries of artistic patterns

    Physics

    Robotics

    Computer vision

    Computer graphics

    Stability of architectural structures

    Molecular biology

    Medicine

    Pattern recognition

  • Historical notes included in many chapters
