Description

Mathematica contains all linear algebraic tools necessary for working in Euclidean Geometry. The notebook "Euclidean Geometry" shows these tools and some variations of them and applies them to define some functions useful in particular in conformal Euclidean geometry.It will be useful for students of the first course who want learning linear algebra and geometry and be introduced into Mathematica. You may download the notebook Euklid.nb together with the package vectorcalc.m, containing affine geometric tools, the package euvec.m, containing modules belonging to Euclidean geometry, and a protocol file rank1.txt, here.
