Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system attributed to Alexandrian Greek mathematician Euclid , which he described in his textbook on geometry : the Elements. Euclid's method consists in assuming a small set of intuitively appealing axioms , and deducing many other propositions theorems from these.

Gauss and Wilhelm Weber to be held at the university. This problem has applications in error detection and correction. Published by Springer International Publishing. If proof simply follows conviction of truth rather than contributing to its construction and is only experienced as a demonstration of something already known to editin true, it is likely to remain meaningless and purposeless in the eyes of students.
