This textbook demonstrates the excitement and beauty of geometry. The approach is that of Klein in his Erlangen program: a geometry is a space together with a set of transformations of that space. The authors explore various geometries: affine, projective, inversive, non-Euclidean and spherical. In each case they carefully explain key results and discuss the relationship among geometries. This richly illustrated and clearly written text includes full solutions to over 200 problems and is suitable both for undergraduate courses on geometry and as a resource for self study.
