The Geometry of the Universe: Part 2
Francis, Stephanie
Mathematics Teaching, n215 p22-26 Sep 2009
Hyperbolic geometry occurs on hyperbolic planes--the most commonly cited one being a saddle shape. In this article, the author explores negative hyperbolic curvature, and provides a detailed description of how she constructed two hyperbolic paraboloids. Hyperbolic geometry occurs on surfaces that have negative curvature. (Contains 11 figures and 4 tables.) [For Part 1, see EJ859729.]
