Christian Zakrajšek (2008) THE COMPLEX PLANE AND TWO-DIMENSIONAL GEOMETRIES. EngD thesis.
This work comprises description of applications of complex numbers in two-dimensional geometry and demonstration development with programming tool Mathematica. In the first part, consisting of chapters two to six, I interpreted complex functions as transformations of the plain and developed theory, necessary for defining and understanding geometry. I interpreted spherical and hyperbolic geometry as geometry of the sphere and the pseudosphere. Transformation groups of Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic geometries are formed using the three reflections theorem. I developed isometric mappings from the sphere and the pseudosphere to the plain and interpreted transformation groups of the three geometries as transformations of the plain and consequently as Möbius transformations. In the second part, consisting of chapter seven, I described applications which demonstrate two-dimensional geometries.
