99 Points of Intersection: Examples-pictures-proofs by Hans Walser

By Hans Walser

Translated from the unique German by means of Peter Hilton and Jean Pedersen

The ninety nine issues of intersection offered right here have been accumulated in the course of a year-long look for unbelievable concurrence of strains. for every instance we discover compelling facts for the occasionally startling undeniable fact that in a geometrical determine 3 directly strains, or occasionally circles, go through one and an identical element. after all, we're acquainted with a few examples of this from simple uncomplicated geometry — the intersection of medians, altitudes, perspective bisectors, and perpendicular bisectors of facets of a triangle. the following there are numerous extra examples — a few for figures except triangles, a few the place much more than 3 instantly traces go through a standard aspect.

The major a part of the ebook provides ninety nine issues of intersection simply visually. they're constructed in a chain of figures, many with out caption or verbal statement. moreover the ebook includes common innovations on and examples of the issues of intersection, in addition to a few standard equipment of proving their lifestyles. some of the examples proven within the e-book have been encouraged via questions and recommendations made through scholars and high-school lecturers. a number of of these examples haven't just a geometrical, but additionally an fascinating aesthetic, element.

The ebook addresses high-school scholars and scholars on the undergraduate point in addition to their academics, yet will entice a person attracted to geometry.
