Taxicab Geometry: An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry
Fascinating, accessible introduction to unusual mathematical system in which distance is not measured by straight lines. Topics include applications to urban geography and planning plus comparisons to Euclidean geometry. Every principle is illustrated and clarified with numerous research problems, exercises, and graphs. Selected answers to problems.
