52A55: Spherical Geometry


Introduction

This section is supposed to be for "spherical and hyperbolic convexity" but it appears to be the only geometric area focusing on things spherical! So we use it to hold a few posts on spherical geometry.

History

Applications and related fields

Subfields

Parent field: 52A: General convexity. But there is not yet a page for that; see its parent page, 52: Convex and discrete geometry


Textbooks, reference works, and tutorials

There is a considerable collection of useful formulas for global navigation and so on at the Aviation Formulary.
