Hyperbolic Geometry - N J Wildberger

This is a complete and relatively elementary course explaining a new, simpler and more elegant theory of non-Euclidean geometry; in particular hyperbolic geometry. It is a purely algebraic approach which avoids transcendental functions like log, sin, tanh etc, relying instead on high school algebra and quadratic equations. The theory is more general, extending beyond the null circle, and connects naturally to Einstein's special theory of relativity.

This course is meant for mathematics majors, bright high school students, high school teachers, engineers, scientists, and others with an interest in mathematics and some basic algebraic skills.

NJ Wildberger is also the developer of Rational Trigonometry: a new and better way of learning and using trigonometry---see his WildTrig YouTube series under user `njwildberger'. There you can also find his series on Algebraic Topology, History of Mathematics and Linear Algebra.
