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.

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.

This volume includes papers ranging from applications in topology and geometry to the algebraic theory of quadratic forms. Various aspects of the use of quadratic forms in algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, and number theory are addressed.

The volume naturally divides into three parts. Part I consists of 14 papers on the foundations of geometry, Part II of 14 papers on the foundations of physics, and Part III of five papers on general problems and applications of the axiomatic method.
