Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Translated from the original German by Peter Hilton and Jean Pedersen

The 99 points of intersection presented here were collected during a year-long search for surprising concurrence of lines. For each example we find compelling evidence for the sometimes startling fact that in a geometric figure three straight lines, or sometimes circles, pass through one and the same point. Of course, we are familiar with some examples of this from basic elementary geometry — the intersection of medians, altitudes, angle bisectors, and perpendicular bisectors of sides of a triangle. Here there are many more examples — some for figures other than triangles, some where even more than three straight lines pass through a common point.

The main part of the book presents 99 points of intersection purely visually. They are developed in a sequence of figures, many without caption or verbal commentary. In addition the book contains general thoughts on and examples of the points of intersection, as well as some typical methods of proving their existence. Many of the examples shown in the book were inspired by questions and suggestions made by students and high-school teachers. Several of those examples have not only a geometrical, but also an intriguing aesthetic, aspect.

The book addresses high-school students and students at the undergraduate level as well as their teachers, but will appeal to anyone interested in geometry.

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
