51M05: General Euclidean geometry


Introduction

We use this category to hold files concerning non-planar Euclidean geometry topics.

The files on this page are more like samples of the techniques one may use for 3D problems (or n-dimensional: much of what is here is really independent of the number of dimensions.)

History

Applications and related fields

The actions of the point groups among the crystallographic groups are the basis for the construction of the Platonic solids and the regular divisions of the sphere in R^3. For more information, consult the polyhedra and spheres pages.

Subfields

Parent field: 51M - Real and Complex Geometry

Software and tables

For computational geometry see 68U05: Computer Graphics

Pointer to Mesa, a 3-D graphics library (similar to OpenGL).
