    We outline some interesting results with illustrations made by dynamic software. We center around the notions of reflection and isogonal conjugation, and introduce a number of interesting triangle centers, lines, conics, and a few cubic curves. ( views) Geometry: From Ancient to Modern by Wong Yan Loi - National University of Singapore, In geometry, the Dandelin spheres are one or two spheres that are tangent both to a plane and to a cone that intersects the plane. The intersection of the cone and the plane is a conic section, and the point at which either sphere touches the plane is a focus of the conic section, so the Dandelin spheres are also sometimes called focal spheres.. The Dandelin spheres were discovered in

    yond the work of the ancient Greeks. Dandelin spheres were invented to facilitate the proof of important geometric properties of conic sections. When constructed in perspective geometry, the three distinct conics were found to collapse into a single type of object. It is in this vein of consid-.

    Book VIII of Conic Sections is lost to us. Appollonius' Conic Sections and Euclid's Elements may represent the quintessence of Greek mathematics. Appollonius was the first to base the theory of all three conics on sections of one circular cone, right or oblique. He is also the one to give the name ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola. Geometry, this very ancient field of study of mathematics, frequently remains too little familiar to students. Michle Audin, professor at the University of Strasbourg, has written a book allowing them to remedy this situation and, starting from linear algebra, extend their knowledge of affine, Euclidean and projective geometry, conic sections and quadrics, curves and : $

INTRODUCTION A. Apollonius at Perga Apollonius was born at Perga (Περγα) on the Southern coast of Asia Mi-nor, near the modern Turkish city of Bursa. Little is known about his life before he arrived in Alexandria, where he studied.

Certain information about Apollonius’ life in Asia Minor can be obtained from his preface to Book 2 of Conics. Mathematics - Mathematics - Apollonius: The work of Apollonius of Perga extended the field of geometric constructions far beyond the range in the Elements.

For example, Euclid in Book III shows how to draw a circle so as to pass through three given points or to be tangent to three given lines; Apollonius (in a work called Tangencies, which no longer survives) found the circle tangent to three. For undergraduate mathematics students the book will be an excellent introduction to an advanced point of view on geometry.

For mathematics teachers it will be a valuable reference and a source book for topics for projects. The book contains over figures and scores of exercises.
