In non-Euclidean geometry parallel lines are not what we think of a parallel. They curve away from or toward each other. Said another way, in Euclidean geometry parallel lines can never cross. In non-Euclidean geometry they can.   There are two non-Euclidean geometries: hyperbolic geometry and ellptic geometry. Geometry that is not on a plane, like spherical geometry Richard L. Faber has written: 'Applied calculus' -- subject(s): Calculus 'Foundations of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry' -- subject(s): Geometry, Geometry, Non-Euclidean The 2 types of non-Euclidean geometries are hyperbolic geometry and ellptic geometry. Euclidean Geometry if the focous of this course. -apex Answer The two commonly mentioned non-Euclidean geometries are hyperbolic geometry and elliptic geometry. If one takes "non-Euclidean geometry" to mean a geometry satisfying all of Euclid's postulates but the parallel postulate, these are the two possible geometries.  Euclid developed Euclidean geometry around 300 BC. I cannot get much briefer than that. not in euclidean geometry (I don't know about non-euclidean). There are different kinds of geometry including elementary geometry, Euclidean geometry, and Elliptic Geometry. Euclid discovered the circle and he named his geometry "Euclidean geometry " elliptic - a kind of non-Euclidean geometry. In Euclidean geometry, parallels never meet. In other geometry, such as spherical geometry, this is not true. Euclid is the father of geometry. That's why the geometry you learn is called Euclidean Geometry. THELS from greek In Euclidean geometry, they do not meet. ###### GeometryMath and ArithmeticAuthors, Poets, and PlaywrightsDIY Projects Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. All Rights Reserved.
