Part 1 (of 6) of a Pure Mathematics Seminar given at UNSW in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. Assoc Prof N J Wildberger explains a new approach to hyperbolic geometry which links it directly to Einstein and Minkowski's relativistic geometry viewed projectively. The idea is to extend Rational Trigonometry to the hyperbolic setting. The first part of the lecture motivates with a summary of classical hyperbolic geometry, then the purely algebraic set-up is introduced. Quite a few new results are illustrated with diagrams.

This is an advanced lecture, suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional mathematicians or physicists. For a more gentle and elementary introduction to Universal Hyperbolic Geometry, see my YouTube series by that name, labelled UnivHypGeom.
