Colloquium: “Conics in Projective Geometry”

Marshall University Math Colloquium
April 8, 2005

Judith Silver
Marshall University

The definition of a conic usually requires the concept of distance; but in projective geometry, conics are determined in a metric-free way. This talk will show how such conics are formed, using Geometer’s Sketchpad and some audience participation. All of the material should be accessible to students, as well as faculty.
