By Jeffrey R. Weeks

Preserving the traditional of excellence set via the former variation, this textbook covers the fundamental geometry of 2- and third-dimensional areas Written by way of a grasp expositor, prime researcher within the box, and MacArthur Fellow, it comprises experiments to figure out the genuine form of the universe and comprises illustrated examples and fascinating workouts that educate mind-expanding rules in an intuitive and casual means. Bridging the distance from geometry to the newest paintings in observational cosmology, the e-book illustrates the relationship among geometry and the habit of the actual universe and explains how radiation final from the large bang may possibly show the particular form of the universe.
