The Methods of Plane Projective Geometry Based on the Use of General Homogenous Coordinates (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new product or edition.


This is a book about powerful mathematical methods rather than a mere catalogue of the properties of conics. The treatment is elegant and refreshing as well as systematic, and throughout the book the author is concerned to lay the foundations of future work. Consequently (unlike too many textbooks) there is little for the student to unlearn when he goes on to more advanced courses. A valuable feature is the large number of carefully selected and graded problems for solution (about 400 in all). When this book was first published, the reviewer in Science suggested that 'this scholarly work should be supplemented by a similar book on the analytic projective geometry of ordinary space'. His suggestion has since been adopted: and the companion volume, E.A. Maxwell's General Homogenous Coordinates in Space of Three Dimensions is now also available.
