Géométrie descriptive à quatre dimensions

Article metrics


THE reviewer approached this volume in a mood of reflexion as to the proper place in the general scheme of geometrical study for four-dimensional geometry .His own introduction to the concepts of geomentry of more than three dimensions was through the excellent volumes of M. Jonffert ("Traité ELémentaire de Géométrie à Quatre Dimensions",1903 ; "Mélanges de Géométrie à Quatre Dimensions",1907). Though interested, he felt an acute disappointment in the natural limitations therein, which was not overcome until, long after, Bertini's work came to his hands. He therefore read M. J. Maurin's volume with a prejudice that, for the geometer, the general n-dimensional case should be first studied and the four-dimensional enlarged upon later.
