Book cover: The Geometry of the SphereThe Geometry of the Sphere
by - Rice University
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.
