Hyperbolic Geometry by J.W. Cannon, W.J. Floyd, R. Kenyon, W.R. Parry

Small book cover: Hyperbolic Geometry

Hyperbolic Geometry
by

Publisher: MSRI
Number of pages: 57

Description:
These notes are intended as a relatively quick introduction to hyperbolic geometry. They review the wonderful history of non-Euclidean geometry. They give five different analytic models for and several combinatorial approximations to non-Euclidean geometry by means of which the reader can develop an intuition for the behavior of this geometry.
