MAT 362 - Modern Geometry


This course provides a history of the development of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries with an emphasis on axiomatic systems. A comparative approach will be taken, highlighting the impact of the Euclidean, Hyperbolic, and Spherical forms of the Parallel Postulate. Various software applications are used to model both Hyperbolic and Elliptic geometries, as well as to explore their properties. Neutral and projective geometries are also explored.

Prerequisite: MAT 206  or equivalent.
1 semester 3 credits.
