Item description for Introduction to Classical Geometries by Ana Irene Ramírez Galarza...
This book follows Klein's proposal of studying geometry by looking at the symmetries (or rigid motions) of the space in question. In this way the classical geometries are studied: Euclidean, affine, elliptic, projective and hyperbolic. For simplicity the focus is on the two-dimensional case, which is already rich enough, though some aspects of the 3 or $n$-dimensional geometries are included. Once plane geometry is well understood, it is much easier to go into higher dimensions.
The book appeals to, and develops, the geometric intuition of the reader. Some basic notions of algebra and analysis are also used to get better understandings of various concepts and results.
