Abstract

Pure geometry or Euclidean geometry is a body of theorems and corollaries logically derived from certain axioms and postulates as presented in Euclid’s Elements. Later geometers, both Greek and others, have added to this. Occasionally some algebra is brought in but not trigonometry. Abraham Lincoln is said to have read the Elements just for the reasoning.
