Publisher: UCLA 2008
Number of pages: 428
The subject of Discrete Geometry and Convex Polytopes has received much attention in recent decades, with the explosion of the work in the field. This book is aimed to be an introduction to some of our favorite parts of the subject, covering some familiar and popular topics as well as some old, forgotten, sometimes obscure, and at times very recent and exciting results.

In the present Treatise the Conic Sections are defined with reference to a focus and directrix, and I have endeavoured to place before the student the most important properties of those curves, deduced, as closely as possible, from the definition.

The book does not assume any previous knowledge of the Conic Sections, which are here treated on the basis of the definition of them as the curves of projection of a circle. Many of the properties of the Conic Sections are proved quite simply.

Euclid's Elements is the most famous mathematical work of classical antiquity, and also has the distinction of being the oldest continuously used mathematical textbook. The main subjects of the work are geometry, proportion, and number theory.

Planar crystallographic groups are one of the very first mathematical creations of humankind. This book's goal is the gradual unveiling of the structural and the mathematical that hides behind the visual and the artistic.
