Complex Numbers and Geometry (MAA Spectrum Series) by Liang-shin Hahn

By Liang-shin Hahn

The aim of this e-book is to illustrate that complicated numbers and geometry will be combined jointly superbly. This leads to effortless proofs and typical generalizations of many theorems in aircraft geometry, resembling the Napoleon theorem, the Ptolemy-Euler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem. The publication is self-contained - no history in complicated numbers is thought - and will be coated at a leisurely speed in a one-semester path. a few of the chapters may be learn independently. Over a hundred workouts are integrated. The booklet will be compatible as a textual content for a geometry direction, or for an issue fixing seminar, or as enrichment for the scholar who desires to recognize extra.

Greatly considered as a vintage of contemporary arithmetic, this elevated model of Felix Klein's celebrated 1894 lectures makes use of modern ideas to envision 3 well-known difficulties of antiquity: doubling the quantity of a dice, trisecting an attitude, and squaring a circle. modern scholars will locate this quantity of specific curiosity in its solutions to such questions as: lower than what situations is a geometrical building attainable?
