This book uses a holistic view of geometry to introduce axiomatic, algebraic, analytic, and differential geometry.
Starting with an informal introduction to non-Euclidean plane geometries, the book develops the theory of these geometries to put them on a rigorous footing. It can be considered an explanation of the Kleinian view a la Erlangen Programme. The treatment, however, goes beyond the Kleinian view of geometry.
Some noteworthy topics presented include ...
Geometric intuition is emphasized throughout the book. Figures are included wherever needed. The book has several exercises varying from computational problems to investigative or explorative open questions.
