Best geometry books

A treatise on the geometry of the circle and some extensions to conic sections by the method of reciprocation, with numerous examples.

Leopold is thrilled to put up this vintage publication as a part of our huge vintage Library assortment. a few of the books in our assortment were out of print for many years, and as a result haven't been available to most of the people. the purpose of our publishing application is to facilitate quick entry to this monstrous reservoir of literature, and our view is this is an important literary paintings, which merits to be introduced again into print after many a long time.

A tour of subriemannian geometries, their geodesics and applications

Subriemannian geometries, sometimes called Carnot-Caratheodory geometries, should be seen as limits of Riemannian geometries. additionally they come up in actual phenomenon regarding ""geometric phases"" or holonomy. Very approximately conversing, a subriemannian geometry comprises a manifold endowed with a distribution (meaning a \$k\$-plane box, or subbundle of the tangent bundle), known as horizontal including an internal product on that distribution.
