## Geometry(geometry)
Because of its immediate practical applications, geometry was one of the first branches of mathematics to be developed.Likewise, it was the first field to be put on an axiomatic basis, by Euclid . The Greeks were interested in many questions about ruler-and-compass constructions . The nextmost significant development had to wait until a millennium later, and that was analytic geometry , in which coordinatesystems are introduced and points are represented as ordered pairs or triples of numbers. This sort of representation hassince then allowed us to construct new geometries other than the standard Euclidean version.
The central notion in geometry is that of
Other geometries can be constructed by choosing a new underlying space to work with (Euclidean geometry uses
