Non-Euclidean Geometries: 581 (Mathematics and Its by András Prékopa,Emil Molnár

By András Prékopa,Emil Molnár

'From not anything i've got created a brand new diversified world,' wrote János Bolyai to his father, Wolgang Bolyai, on November three, 1823, to enable him understand his discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, as we name it this day. the result of Bolyai and the co-discoverer, the Russian Lobachevskii, replaced the process arithmetic, opened the way in which for contemporary actual theories of the 20 th century, and had an influence at the heritage of human tradition. The papers during this quantity, which commemorates the 2 hundredth anniversary of the start of János Bolyai, have been written by way of best scientists of non-Euclidean geometry, its historical past, and its functions. a few of the papers current new discoveries in regards to the lifestyles and works of János Bolyai and the background of non-Euclidean geometry, others care for geometrical axiomatics; polyhedra; fractals; hyperbolic, Riemannian and discrete geometry; tilings; visualization; and functions in physics.
