About this book :-
Rational Trigonometry to Universal Geometry written by Norman Wildberger
This text introduces a remarkable new approach to trigonometry and Euclidean geometry, with dramatic implications for mathematics teaching, industrial applications and the direction of mathematical research in geometry.
The key insight is that geometry is a quadratic subject. So rational trigonometry replaces the quasi-linear notions of distance and angle with the related, but more elementary, quadratic concepts of quadrance and spread, thus allowing the development of Euclidean geometry over any field. This text covers the key definitions and results of this new theory in a systematic way, along with many applications including Platonic solids, projectile motion, Snell’s law, the problems of Snellius-Pothenot and Hansen, and three-dimensional volumes and surface areas.
