About the BookCoordinate geometry of three dimensions is an advanced branch of analytical geometry. It is studied with the help of algebra though it is largely based on imagination. French mathematician Reni Descartes—fondly remembered as soldier mathematician —is said to be the inventor of coordinate geometry of three dimensions. He published his ideas way back in the 17th century, and the subject has advanced much further since then, with the contributions from eminent mathematicians all over the world.
The book Coordinate Geometry of Three Dimensions covers all the pertinent topics, which makes it a treatise on the subject. The language of the book is simple and manner lucid for easy comprehension by the readers. Terms, equations, theorems, etc. have been illustrated with the help of diagrams. Illustrative examples have been given in every chapter. Besides, exercises have been incorporated for thorough practice by the students. Answers to these exercises have been provided, enabling them to self-check their attempts.
The book will prove highly useful to the students of mathematics pursing graduation and postgraduation. Those preparing for various competitive examinations, with mathematics/ geometry option, will be immensely benefited from this book.About the Author/sHari Kishan is Senior Reader in Mathematics at Kishori Raman Postgraduate College, Mathura, affiliated to Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar University, Agra.
