Euclid

Euclid (/ˈjuːklɪd/ ewk-lid; Ancient Greek: Εὐκλείδης Eukleidēs), fl. 300 BC, also known asEuclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". (323–283 BC). His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the Elements, Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms. Euclid also wrote works on perspective, conic sections, spherical geometry, number theory and rigor.

What is an AXIOM or POSTULATE?

"Let the following be postulated":

- "To draw a straight line from any point to any point."
- "To produce [extend] a finite straight line continuously in a straight line."
- "To describe a circle with any centre and distance [radius]."
- "That all right angles are equal to one another."
- The parallel postulate: "That, if a straight line falling on two straight lines make the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles."
