Fundamentals of MODERN GEOMETRY for College Students free pdf This text presents the essential of affine, Euclidean, projective and hyperbolic geometries in a transformational perspective as inaugurated by F. Klein. It originated from the author's 2-volume textbook in French 'Geometrie Affine et Projective' Editions Ceda, Abidjan. It can be used as a one semester Modern Geometry course for second year college math students, especially those who are prospective high school mathematics teachers. The text starts with a concise historical development of geometry from the times of Thales and Euclid to the 20th century, highlighting significant discoveries in Geometry. Honore P. Mavinga is a Professor of Mathematics. He is a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He received his Master's and Doctoral degree at the Universite Catholique de Louvain in Belgium and an extended study diploma from the Universite de Paris 5. Following his studies in Europe, he received a postdoctoral fellowship grant from the US state department for a semester at Princeton. He returned to Africa where he taught at Universite de Kinshasa (Congo) then at Universite d'Abidjan (Cote d' Ivoire). During that time he served as one of the 12 members of the board committee of the African Mathematical Union which held its initial Pan African Convention in Rabat (Morocco) in 1976. He also taught as visiting associate at the University of the South Sewanee Tennessee for one year and the next year at Cuttington College (Fundamentals of MODERN GEOMETRY for College Students, Honore P Mavinga - Shop Online for Books in Venezuela
