Euclidean and non-euclidean geometry: projective, hyperbolic, Möbius, and maybe Lie geometry. The continuation is Geometry II: Discrete Differential Geometry.

Exercise sheets

The exercise sheets can be found here.

Homework policy

To get a certificate of participation, you need to satisfactorily complete 50% of the homework assignments.
