The Penguin Dictionary of Curious And Interesting Geometry

£3.99

A companion volume to the author’s “Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers”, which focuses on arithmetic and number theory. The entries in this book cover curves, topology, tilings and all branches of plane and three-dimensional geometry, from Euclid to fractals. From the simple circle to fiendish fractals, from billiard balls bouncing round a cube to geometry with matchsticks, from Pythagoras to Penrose tilings to pursuit curves, this dictionary covers a wide range of oddities. It has a comprehensive index.
