"The papers in this volume, which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Janos Bolyai, were written by leading scientists of non-Euclidean geometry, its history, and its applications. Some of the papers present new discoveries about the life and works of Janos Bolyai and the history of non-Euclidean geometry, others deal with geometrical axiomatics; polyhedra; fractals; hyperbolic, Riemannian and discrete geometry; tilings; visualization; and applications in physics. Audience This book is intended for those who teach, study, and do research in geometry and history of mathematics. Cultural historians, physicists, and computer scientists will also find it an important source of information."--Publisher's website
