Would it even deserve to be called the “true” spacetime geometry?
It is this geometry that is called hyperbolic geometry.
Ordinary analytical or Cartesian geometry is conducted over the reals.
Instead, only a few medical demonstrations are subalternate to geometry.
One, projective geometry, amplified and improved the synthetic side of geometry.
The nature of the relation between the abstract geometry and its practical expression has also to be considered.
Non-Euclidean geometry, literally any geometry that is not the same as Euclidean geometry.
The two generalizations of Euclidean geometry essentially constitute incompatible approaches to applied geometry.
The epistemological significance of projective geometry rests on its implications for the nature and rigour of classical geometry.
Klein’s Erlangen Programme and what has become known as the Kleinian view of geometry is described in the entry, Nineteenth Century Geometry.
In the opinion of many in the 19th century, Euclidean geometry lost its fundamental status to a geometry that was regarded as more general: projective geometry.
The truth of geometry was no longer to be taken for granted, but had become in some measure empirical, and philosophical ideas about the intelligibility of geometry had also deepened.
Analytic geometry, also called coordinate geometry, mathematical subject in which algebraic symbolism and methods are used to represent and solve problems in geometry.
It is not just that there are formulae, but that they hint at an alternative formulation of geometry, one in which the geometry described in Euclid’s Elements might prove to be but a special case.
Some texts call this (and therefore spherical geometry) Riemannian geometry, but this term more correctly applies to a part of differential geometry that gives a way of intrinsically describing any surface.
For information on specific branches of geometry, see Euclidean geometry, analytic geometry, projective geometry, differential geometry, non-Euclidean geometries, and topology.
All this convinced both Bolyai and Lobachevskii that the new geometry could be a description of physical space and it would henceforth be an empirical task to decide whether Euclidean geometry or non-Euclidean geometry was true.
Eventually it was realized that geometry need not be limited to the study of flat surfaces (plane geometry) and rigid three-dimensional objects (solid geometry) but that even the most abstract thoughts and images might be represented and developed in geometric terms.
He presented a way of showing that metrical geometries, such as Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, and other geometries, such as inversive geometry and birational geometry, can be regarded as special cases of projective geometry (as can affine geometry, which he did not know about in 1872).
It is, of course, true, that no amount of consistent deductions in the new geometry rules out the possibility that a contradiction does exist, but the intriguing relationship of the new geometry to spherical geometry, and the existence of trigonometric formulae for triangles strongly suggested that the new geometry was at least consistent.
- the pure mathematics of points and lines and curves and surfaces
