Geometry and Its Applications by Walter Meyer

Book Description

"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. The realistic applications integrated throughout the text, includes (but not limited to): Symmetries of artistic patterns; Physics; Robotics; Computer vision; Computer graphics; Stability of architectural structures; Molecular biology; Medicine; and Pattern recognition. There are historical notes included in many chapters, and Instructor's Manual with solutions available for all adopters of the text.
