Committee of the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics Geometry Conference, Part III: Geometric Transformation Groups and Other Topics.
Durst, Lincoln K., Ed.
This is Part III of the first volume of the proceedings of the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) Geometry Conference, held at Santa Barbara in June, 1967. The purpose of the conference was to consider the status of geometry in colleges at the undergraduate level. The conference, attended by undergraduate mathematics teachers, involved lectures on various aspects of geometry, analyses o f material presented, and an examination of the relevance of the material to the undergraduate curriculum. In Part III of the proceedings are contained the following lectures: (1) "Transformation Groups from the Geometric Viewpoint," by H.S.M Coxeter, (2) "Two Applications of Geometry," by Herbert Busemann, (3) "Some Computational Illustrations of Geometrical Properties in Functional Iteration," by Glen Culler, (4) "Generalizations in Geometry," by Preston Hammend, (5) "The Nature and Importance of Elementary Geometry in a Modern Education," by Paul J. Kelly, and (6) "Joining and Extending as Geometric Operations (A Coordinate-Free Approach to N-Space)," by Walter Prenowitz. (RP)
