**Elementary Euclidean geometry. An introduction**

This booklet, first released in 2004, is a real advent to the geometry of traces and conics within the Euclidean aircraft. strains and circles give you the start line, with the classical invariants of basic conics brought at an early level, yielding a extensive subdivision into varieties, a prelude to the congruence class.

The subgroup p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) ⊂ π1 (X, x0 ) is called the covering p group of T −→ X . Let x′0 = x0 , p(x′0 ) = p(x0 ) = x0 . Consider a path α : I −→ T such that α(0) = x0 , α(1) = x′0 . Then the projection α = p(α) is a loop in X , see Figure to the left. Clearly α# : p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) −→ p∗ (π1 (T, x′0 )) given by α# (g) = αgα−1 is an isomorphism. Consider the coset π1 (X, x0 )/p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) (the subgroup p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )) ⊂ π1 (X, x0 ) is not normal subgroup in general). 1. There is one-to-one correspondence p−1 (x0 ) ←→ π1 (X, x0 )/p∗ (π1 (T, x0 )).

We note that in particular π1 (T 2 ) ∼ = Z ⊕ Z, which is obvious from the product formula π1 (X × Y ) ∼ = π1 (X) × π1 (Y ). Recall that a non-oriented two-dimensional manifold of genus g is heomeomorphic either to Mg2 (1), a connective sum of a projective plane RP2 and g tori T 2 # · · · #T 2 , or to Mg2 (2), a connective sum of the Klein bottle Kl2 and g tori T 2 # · · · #T 2 . 7. 1. The group π1 (Mg2 (1)) is isomorphic to a group on generators c1 , . . , c2g+1 wit a single relation c21 · · · c22g+1 = 1.

The properties (a), (b), (e) follow from the definition. 10. 3. Let ǫi ∈ H σi be a vector which has σi -coordinate equal to 1, and all others are zeros. Thus (ǫ1 , . . , ǫk ) ∈ E(σ). For each k -frame (v1 , . . , vk ) ∈ E(σ) consider the transformation: (13) T = Tǫk ,vk ◦ Tǫk−1 ,vk−1 ◦ · · · · · · ◦ Tǫ1 ,v1 : Rn −→ Rn σi First we notice that vi = −ǫi since vi ∈ H . Thus the transformations Tǫi ,vi are well-defined. 11. Prove that the transformation T takes the k -frame (ǫ1 , . . , ǫk ) to the frame (v1 , .
