Geometry (8,858 Books)


Geometry (Ancient Greek: ?e?µet??a; geo- 'earth', -metri 'measurement') 'Earth-measuring' is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. Geometry is one of the oldest mathematical sciences. Initially a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes, in the 3rd century BC geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment—Euclidean geometry—set a standard for many centuries to follow.
