The thirty-three papers in this volume constitute the proceedings of an international symposium on The axiomatic method, with special reference to geometry and physics. The volume naturally divides into three parts. Part I consists of fourteen papers on the foundations of geometry, Part II of fourteen papers on the foundations of physics, and Part III of five papers on general problems and applications of the axiomatic method.

This is an introduction to fractal geometry for students without especially strong mathematical preparation, or any particular interest in science. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.

We are interested here in the geometry of an ordinary sphere. In plane geometry we study points, lines, triangles, polygons, etc. On the sphere there are no straight lines. Therefore it is natural to use great circles as replacements for lines.

In this book, after the statement of the axioms, the ideas considered are those concerning the association of Projective and Descriptive Geometry by means of ideal points, point to point correspondence, congruence, distance, and metrical geometry.
