Description:
The Shape of Space, Third Edition maintains the standard of excellence set by the previous editions. This lighthearted textbook covers the basic geometry and topology of two- and three-dimensional spaces―stretching students’ minds as they learn to visualize new possibilities for the shape of our universe.

Written by a master expositor, leading researcher in the field, and MacArthur Fellow, its informal exposition and engaging exercises appeal to an exceptionally broad audience, from liberal arts students to math undergraduate and graduate students looking for a clear intuitive understanding to supplement more formal texts, and even to laypeople seeking an entertaining self-study book to expand their understanding of space.

Features of the Third Edition:

  • Full-color figures throughout
  • « Picture proofs » have replaced algebraic proofs
  • Simpler handles-and-crosscaps approach to surfaces
  • Updated discussion of cosmological applications
  • Intuitive examples missing from many college and graduate school curricula
