One of the most appealing aspects of this book is the author's way of introducing projective geometry to pique the reader's interest in modern algebra. Summing Up: Recommended.

Such geometries, which we call projective parabolic geometries, are abelian parabolic geometries whose flat model is an R-space G pin the infinitesimal isotropy representation Wof a larger self-dual symmetric R-space H q.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. While somewhat neglected due to their nonassociativity, they stand at the crossroads of many interesting fields of mathematics. Here we describe them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and. Presented as an engaging discourse, this textbook invites readers to delve into the historical origins and uses of geometry. The narrative traces the influence of Euclid’s system of geometry, as developed in his classic text The Elements, through the Arabic period, the modern era in the West, and up to twentieth century and proof methods used by mathematicians from those.

The counterexample is the Hartshorne's book on projective geometry that starts out with a list of axioms, as in high school geometry book.

We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed them. : Charles Jasper Joly. Very clear, and exhaustive and intense book on quaternions and geometry.

It's clear and well written. It lacks from an introduction at a good level, so it forces the reader to search for other texts to be read before entering deeply into by: The book examines some very unexpected topics like the use of tensor calculus in projective geometry, building on research by computer scientist Jim Blinn.

It would be difficult to read that book from cover to cover but the book is fascinating and has splendid illustrations in color. Quaternions and Projective Geometry.

Joly, C Proceedings of the Royal Society of London (). –   This book investigates the geometry of quaternion and octonion algebras. Following a comprehensive historical introduction, the book illuminates the special properties of 3- and 4-dimensional Euclidean spaces using quaternions, leading to enumerations of the corresponding finite groups of symmetries.

The second half of the book discusses the less familiar octonion algebra, concentrating 5/5(1). In mathematics, quaternionic projective space is an extension of the ideas of real projective space and complex projective space, to the case where coordinates lie in the ring of quaternions.

Quaternionic projective space of dimension n is usually denoted by. and is a closed manifold of (real) dimension is a homogeneous space for a Lie group action, in more than one way."From Menelaus and elations to window taping and writing mathematics, this book provides a delightful mesh of classical geometry, perspective in art, beautiful graphics, and an exploratorium of exercises.
