9780123694270: Geometry and Its Applications, Second Edition

Meyer's Geometry and Its Applications, Second Edition, combines traditional geometry with current ideas to present a modern approach that is grounded in real-world applications. It balances the deductive approach with discovery learning, and introduces axiomatic, Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry. The text integrates applications and examples throughout and includes historical notes in many chapters.

The Second Edition of Geometry and Its Applications is a significant text for any college or university that focuses on geometry's usefulness in other disciplines. It is especially appropriate for engineering and science majors, as well as future mathematics teachers.

  • Realistic applications integrated throughout the text, including (but not limited to):
    • Symmetries of artistic patterns
    • Physics
    • Robotics
    • Computer vision
    • Computer graphics
    • Stability of architectural structures
    • Molecular biology
    • Medicine
    • Pattern recognition
  • Historical notes included in many chapters

Book Description:

Applications to subjects like robotics, molecular structure, and computer vision make this an ideal text for engineers, scientists, and future math teachers

From the Back Cover:

Walter Meyer's Geometry and its Applications extends a first college-level course in geometry to include applications and contemporary topics. This text combines traditional geometry with ideas of recent decades to present a new approach for the 21st century.
The text introduces axiomatic Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry. It balances the deductive approach and the coordinate approach with discovery learning.
Geometry and its Applications offers a breadth of traditional and contemporary applications, including symmetries of artistic patterns, physics, robotics, computer graphics, molecular biology, medicine, and more.
Walter Meyer is experienced in employing geometry as an industrial researcher and developer and has researched and taught geometry for nearly thirty years. The National Science Foundation, COMAP, and the Sloan Foundation have supported his work.

"this text is more interesting to read than our present text. The author writes at a more appropriate level. (He) expresses himself well especially n the historical texts, examples, and ideas."
--David E. Ewing, Central Missouri State University
"Real strengths of the text include the applications, the treatment of symmetry, and the attention to isometries. The style is conversational and the approaches to problems are sensible. I appreciate the large number of problems."
--Steven Williams, Brigham Young University
"The author's emphasis on applications sets this proposed text apart from the standard ones. His examples make the point that geometry plays a vital role in the modern world."
--Gerald E. Gannon, California State University, Fullerton
