MATH 3640 MODERN GEOMETRY (3 credits)
This course will study the modern foundations of Euclidean and Non-Euclidian Geometry. Included will be a study of the principles of axiomatic systems. Euclidean Geometry will be investigated using Hilbert's axioms for Euclidean geometry (or another equivalent Euclidean geometry axiom set). Hyperbolic geometry will be encountered through the models of Klein and Poincare. Neutral geometry with Lambert and Saccheri quadrilaterals will be studied. Finite geometries and projective geometries will also be explored. (Cross-listed with MATH 8645).
Prerequisite(s): MATH 2230 with a grade of C- or better.
