Two-dimensional spaces. Volume 1, Geometry of lengths, areas, and volumes

Author: James W Cannon
Publisher: Providence, Rhode Island : American Mathematical Society, [2017]
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English
Summary:
This is the first of a three volume collection devoted to the geometry, topology, and curvature of 2-dimensional spaces. The collection provides a guided tour through a wide range of topics by one of the twentieth century's masters of geometric topology. The books are accessible to college and graduate students and provide perspective and insight to mathematicians at all levels who are interested in geometry and  Read more...
