Description

With over 200 full color photographs, this non-traditional, tactile introduction to non-Euclidean geometries also covers early development of geometry and connections between geometry, art, nature, and sciences.

For the crafter or would-be crafter, there are detailed instructions for how to crochet various geometric models and how to use them in explorations.

New to the 2nd Edition; Daina Taimina discusses her own adventures with the hyperbolic planes as well as the experiences of some of her readers.

Includes recent applications of hyperbolic geometry such as medicine, architecture, fashion & quantum computing.
