Course aims

The goal of the subject is to provide an overview of spaces used in geometry. The use of various methods of analytic geometry. The mathematical theory of quadratic curves.

Brief description of the course

Concepts of affine space and Euclidean space. The main problems of analytic geometry. The concepts of pencil and bundle of lines, circles, and planes, applications. Conic sections. Polar equations of conic sections. General equations of second order curves. The simplification of general equations with shift of frame and rotation of frame. Invariance of second order curves. Conjugate diameters and directions, asymptotic directions and main directions of second order curves. Tangents of second order curves. The simplification of general equations of second order curves and the eigenvalue problem.

Independent work

(approximately 48 academic hours) consists of working with the study literature, lecture notes and solving the exercises.
