Convex bodies are at once simple and amazingly rich in structure. This collection involves researchers in classical convex geometry, geometric functional analysis, computational geometry, and related areas of harmonic analysis.

These are notes from an experimental mathematics course entitled Geometry and the Imagination as developed by Conway, Doyle, Thurston and others. The course aims to convey the richness, diversity, connectedness, depth and pleasure of mathematics.

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.
by Charles Howard Hinton - S. Sonnenschein & Co.
C. H. Hinton discusses the subject of the higher dimensionality of space, his aim being to avoid mathematical subtleties and technicalities, and thus enable his argument to be followed by readers who are not sufficiently conversant with mathematics.
