# MATH1220: Further Reading

1. Peter R. Cromwell, *Polyhedra*, Cambridge University Press 1997. A very
accessible book on Polyhedra.

2. C.G. Gibson, *Elementary Geometry of Differentiable Curves*, Cambridge University
Press 2001. A hands-on introduction to the study of curves using
calculus.

3. Kai Hauser and Reinhard Lang, *On the geometrical and physical meaning of Newton’s Solution to Kepler’s problem*, Mathematical Intelligencer, Vol. 25 no. 4, p35--44.
This is a very recent article in a very good mathematics journal.
Many of the articles are quite hard for undergraduates but this one (also bit hard!) is worth a look. You will find this journal on Level 8 of the library.

4. Leonard Mlodinow, *Euclid’s window : the story of geometry from parallel lines to hyperspace*, Allen Lane 2002. A popular science book on geometry which
gets into physics at the end.

5. John Oprea, *Differential Geometry and its Applications, Prentice Hall 1997*.
It introduces curves and surfaces using Maple to calculate and graph.
6. John Roe, *Elementary Geometry, Oxford Science Publications. Lots of interesting stuff here*.

7. Jeffrey R. Weeks, *The shape of space : how to visualize surfaces and threedimensional manifolds*, M. Dekker, c. 1985. This is an accessible and interesting book.
