Ruler and compass constructions

... Let K denote the latter subfield of the complex numbers. By (4), the field P of constructible numbers contains K. To show P ⊆ K, it is enough, by the definition (2) of P, to show that each Pi ⊆ K, which we do my induction. Since P0 = {0, 1}, it is clearly contained in K. Now suppose that Pi ⊆ K for ...

... modules are naturally identified with matrices over R. The canonical example of a based free module is Rn with the usual basis; it consists of n-tuples of elements of R, or “column vectors” of length n. Unfortunately, there are rings for which Rn ∼ = Rn+t , t 6= 0. We make the following definition t ...

Topological homogeneity

# Homogeneous coordinates

In mathematics, homogeneous coordinates or projective coordinates, introduced by August Ferdinand Möbius in his 1827 work Der barycentrische Calcül, are a system of coordinates used in projective geometry, as Cartesian coordinates are used in Euclidean geometry. They have the advantage that the coordinates of points, including points at infinity, can be represented using finite coordinates. Formulas involving homogeneous coordinates are often simpler and more symmetric than their Cartesian counterparts. Homogeneous coordinates have a range of applications, including computer graphics and 3D computer vision, where they allow affine transformations and, in general, projective transformations to be easily represented by a matrix.If the homogeneous coordinates of a point are multiplied by a non-zero scalar then the resulting coordinates represent the same point. Since homogeneous coordinates are also given to points at infinity, the number of coordinates required to allow this extension is one more than the dimension of the projective space being considered. For example, two homogeneous coordinates are required to specify a point on the projective line and three homogeneous coordinates are required to specify a point in the projective plane.
