Geometry is a branch of mathematics and focuses on the shape, position and size of figures as well as the property of space. A person who works in this sector is known as a geometer.
Geometry includes different subfields: Euclidean geometry, differential geometry, topology, convex geometry, algebraic geometry and discrete geometry.
Euclidean geometry is defined as the geometry in its classical sense. It includes the study of points, lines, triangles, circles planes, similarity and analytic geometry. The discipline is also applied in computer science as well as crystallography.
Differential geometry focuses on calculus and linear algebras and uses them to solve geometrical problems. It is usually used by physicians.
Topology relates to the properties of geometric objects that are unchanged by continuous maps.
Convex geometry studies convex shapes in the Euclidean spaces and adopts techniques of real analysis.
Algebraic geometry analyses geometry by adopting multivariate polynomials as well as other algebraic techniques.
Discrete geometry focuses on the relative position of simple geometric objects such as lines, circles and points.
People who focus on this discipline have to consider all the fundamental geometry concepts such as axioms, points, lines, planes, angles, curves, surfaces, manifolds, typologies and metrics, dimension and symmetry.
