About this book :-
Two-dimensional Spaces, Volume 3: Non-Euclidean Geometry & Curvature written by James W. Cannon .
This textbook is the last of a three volume set describing a very personal arc of thought that begins with earth measurement (that is, geo-metry), passes through the topology of 2-dimensional surfaces, and ends with space-time measurement (that is, geochronometry, where Einstein identifies gravity with the curvature of space-time). The volumes are (1) The Geometry of the 2- Dimensional Spaces; (2) The Topology of 2-Dimensional Spaces; and (3) An Introduction to Non Euclidean Geometry and Curvature.
Volume 3 gives a general introduction to hyperbolic non-Euclidean geometry in all dimensions, with an introduction to all of the standard models and their relationships to one another. It explains why the models are called hyperbolic. It discusses the ways in which this geometry differs from Euclidean geometry. It calculates the shortest paths in this geometry (the geodesics). It explains some of the reasons why this geometry is studied. Following the introduction to non-Euclidean geometry, Volume 3 approaches curvature in dimension 2 in a way that does not begin with the Gauss map. Instead, it begins with a natural metricinvariant definition of curvature that measures in an obvious way the difficulty of flattening a surface into the plane without distorting lengths and areas. It ends with the Gauss map and a proof of Gauss’s Theorema Egregium. This approach, which is backward to the classical approach, is intuitive; but it entails difficulties in proving that certain limits exist.
