About this book :-
Geometry of Lengths, Areas, and Volumes Two-Dimensional Spaces written by James W. Cannon .
This volume is suitable for undergraduates who understand calculus and linear algebra and who want to understand a number of those beautiful results usually quoted to the undergraduate without proof. It explains an entire string of results that teased me as an undergraduate because they were stated without proof. I sorely wanted to understand why they were true. This book is written for the “me” who was a young college student. A number of individual sections might be appropriately used as projects for an advanced undergraduate. An occasional more difficult section or exercise is included for extra challenge, and may be skipped.
The main focus in this textbook is to explore classical attempts to measure distances and areas in the plane and gives natural applications of those attempts to classical problems in geometry and to algebra, number theory, and measure theory. This volume explains all Pythagorean triples such as 32 + 42 = 52 geometrically and generalizes them to Pythagorean n-tuples. It describes Archimedes’ discovery of the volume of the sphere using weights and balance arms. The method of his discovery eventually led to the methods of calculus. This volume also calculates the volume of spheres and balls in all dimensions and explains Wallis’s product formula for p. It explains the geometry behind Farey sequences and continued fractions. It proves the unsolvability of squaring the circle, duplicating the cube, and trisecting the angle. It explains Hilbert’s proof that p and e are transcendental. The volume ends with a proof of the wonderful Hausdorff-Banach-Tarski Paradox, which shows that the 2-dimensional sphere can be broken into finitely many pieces that are too complicated and fuzzy to be assigned a well-defined area since they can be rigidly reassembled to form two copies of the original sphere.
