Researches on Curves of the Second Order
by George Whitehead Hearn
Publisher: Project Gutenberg 2005
Number of pages: 64
Researches on curves of the second order, also on cones and spherical conics treated analytically, in which the tangencies of Apollonius are investigated, and general geometrical constructions deduced from analysis; also several of the geometrical conclusions of M. Chasles are analytically resolved, together with many properties entirely original.

We outline some interesting results with illustrations made by dynamic software. We center around the notions of reflection and isogonal conjugation, and introduce a number of interesting triangle centers, lines, conics, and a few cubic curves.

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.
