Four facets of geometry

The study of geometry is at least 2500 years old, and it is within this field that the concept of mathematical proof - deductive reasoning from a set of axioms - first arose. The lecture will present four areas of geometry: Euclidean, non-Euclidean, projective geometry in Renaissance art, and geometry of space-time inside a black hole.
