Название: Minkowski Geometry (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)
Автор: A. C. Thompson
This is a comprehensive treatment of Minkowski geometry. The author begins by describing the fundamental metric properties and the topological properties of existence of Minkowski space. This is followed by a treatment of two-dimensional spaces and characterizations of Euclidean space among normed spaces. The central three chapters present the theory of area and volume in normed spaces — a fascinating geometrical interplay among the various roles of the ball in Euclidean space. Later chapters deal with trigonometry and differential geometry in Minkowski spaces. The book ends with a brief look at J. J. Schaffer's ideas on the intrinsic geometry of the unit sphere.
