About the book
This book presents in an elegant way, the essentials of two and three dimensions of analytical geometry with plenty of examples to illustrate the basic ideas and to bequeath to the students numerous techniques of problem-solving. The exercises provide ample problems to supplement steady progress and to broaden the intuition of generalization. The overall approach is systematic, rigorous and least dependent on Euclidean propositions.
