Taxicab Geometry: An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry

Buy

Develops a simple non-Euclidean geometry and explores some of its practical applications through graphs, research problems, and exercises. Includes selected answers.

This book has a triple purpose: to develop a very simple, concrete non-Euclidean geometry; to explore a few of its many real-world applications; to pose some of the original, yet accessible research questions that abound in this new geometry. The only prerequisite is some familiarity with Euclidean geometry.
