Beschreibung:
Even if the material covered by Euclid may be considered elementary for the most part, the way in which he presents essential features of mathematics in a much more general sense, has set the standards for more than 2000 years. He displays the axiomatic foundation of a mathematical theory and its conscious development towards the solution of a specific problem. We see how abstraction works and how it enforces the strictly deductive presentation of a theory. We learn what creative definitions are and how the conceptual grasp leads to the classification of the relevant objects.
This is a book for all lovers of mathematics with a solid background
in high school geometry, from teachers and students to university
professors. For each of Euclid's thirteen Books, the author has given
a general description of the contents and structure of the Book, plus
one or two sample proofs.
