  Famous Quote: "There is no royal road to geometry." In addition to his brilliant contributions to linear and planar geometry, Euclid wrote about number theory, rigor, perspective, conical geometry, and spherical geometry. Sire, there is no royal road to geometry. Euclid That, if a straight line falling on two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which the angles are less than two right angles.

It is said that when King Ptolemy asked for an easier way of learning mathematics, Euclid (the inventor of geometry as we know it) replied, “There is no royal road to geometry”. For many people, math isn’t a strong suit. If you struggle with it, read on to learn how you can improve your understanding and excel in the subject. Steps. The pupil asked what he would gain from learning geometry. So Euclid told his slave to get the pupil a coin so he would be gaining from his studies. Another story says that Ptomlemy asked the mathematician if there was an easier way to learn geometry, Euclid replied, "there is no royal road to geometry", and sent the king to study. To Top. His.

A Royal Road to Algebraic Geometry. Summary: Taking off from Euclid's famous assertion to the contrary, this book leads the reader on a clear path - a royal road - through the elements of modern algebraic geometry from algebraic curves to the present shape of . A Royal Road to Algebraic Geometry by Audun Holme is a newly published book which tries to make Algebraic Geometry as easy as possible for studetns. Also, the book by Griffits and Harris called Principles of Algebraic Geometry in spite of being rather old, and working mostly with only complex field, gives a good intuition on this very abstract.

The book starts by explaining this enigmatic answer, the aim of the book being to argue that indeed, in some sense there is a royal road to algebraic geometry. From a point of departure in algebraic curves, the exposition moves on to the present shape of the field, culminating with Alexander Grothendieck’s theory of schemes.3/5(4).

The great mathematician is said to have replied “There is no royal road to geometry.” [Euclid]. Today we have some of the same challenges, but different attempts to find “royal roads” — i.e., attempts to skirt the process of hard work that is necessary to master a field sufficiently well to comment knowledgeably on the subject.

The Royal Road was an ancient highway reorganized and rebuilt by the Persian king Darius the Great (Darius I) of the first Persian Empire in the 5th century BCE. Darius built the road to facilitate rapid communication throughout his very large empire from Susa to Sardis. Mounted couriers of the Angarium were supposed to travel 1, miles (2, km) from Susa to Sardis in nine days; the.

This book is suitable for the advanced undergraduate student, graduate student, or mathematician not working in algebra or algebraic geometry. It is difficult to trace down the precise prerequisites, but one should have a mastery of "elementary" (read: high school) mathematics as well as basic linear and abstract algebra such as that found in a.

by Thomas Malton. Euclid (/ ˈ juː k l ɪ d /; Ancient Greek: Εὐκλείδης – Eukleídēs, pronounced [ː.dɛːs]; fl. BC), sometimes called Euclid of Alexandria to distinguish him from Euclid of Megara, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "founder of geometry" or the "father of geometry".

He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (– BC). Euclid — ‘There is no Royal Road to Geometry.’ To see what your friends thought of this quote, please sign up.

As the story goes, Euclid was tutoring Ptolemy on geometry out of Elements and the king asked Euclid if there was an easier way to learn geometry than to work through all of these books.

Euclid replied simply that “There is no royal road to geometry.” While this story may or may not be apocryphal, Euclid’s pithy response has lent its name to any number of books and articles over the.

Now available from Waveland Press, the Third Edition of Roads to Geometry is appropriate for several kinds of students. Pre-service teachers of geometry are provided with a thorough yet accessible treatment of plane geometry in a historical context. Mathematics majors will find its axiomatic development sufficiently rigorous to provide a foundation for further study in the areas of .Fundamentals of Geometry "Ptolemy once asked Euclid if there was not.

While there are no royal roads to geometry, I invite you on a hitchhiking trip into this wonderful land.Euclid and the "royal road" Such instances bring to mind a historical anecdote from the great Greek mathematician Euclid.

He is widely regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time, and even today is the basis of the course on geometry that many have taken in high school.
