5.0 von 5 Sternen Intro to Non-Euclidean Geometry, 8. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Taschenbuch)
This is the best introduction to non-Euclidean geometry and special relativity that I have ever encountered. The book is basic enough to be understandable (at least to a degree) by any intelligent (and determined) adolescent, but deep enough for the physics or math undergraduate and perhaps even graduate student to find continual interest in. Rucker has a way of introducing complex ideas in a rather simple fashion so trhat one doesn't often realise how deep the subject matter is at first. Unlike some of his other books, however, considerable math background is required and a substantial amount of effort and force of will on the part of the reader will be necessary. All the same, the book is an intensely interesting foray into the world of geometry and relativistic physics. His adaption af Abbott's "A.Square" character to ealborated his ideas are particularly amusing and helpful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thought provoking introduction to "modern" geometry, 6. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Taschenbuch)
I remember being given this book as a thirteen year old and finding the ideas stimulating and interesting. Later as an undergraduate in mathematics and physics I was able to dip into it again, and then again as a graduate student.
At least some (and later all!) of the ideas in the book, four dimensions and 'embedded' universes, non-Euclidean geometry and the 'bent', relativistic nature of space-time are presented with creative analogies and clever diagrams. I'd recommend this book to any clever teenager interested in being stretched and introduced to some of the important and exciting ideas of modern geometry and space-time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Tesseract's for you!, 7. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Taschenbuch)
I first took this book from the bookshelves at my local library when I was a high school student. It was a thin little book which I thought I'd check out. Little did I know then how wonderful it would be. This book introduces us to the incredible worlds of the 4th (and higher) dimension and to some of the math/geometry associated with it. Especially interesting are the parts on Non-Euclidean geometry and special relativity. I recommend this book to anyone intrigued by the nature of space-time or who always just wanted to know what a hypercube is. ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing concepts of space and time !!!, 5. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Taschenbuch)
An excellent introduction to concepts of space and time in modern physics, including non-Euclidean geometry - the geometry of the curved spaces. Minimal background in mathematics is requested and multiple diagrams help a better understanding of the most difficult passages. The book is so interesting that I finished it in 5 days !!!
