In hyperbolic geometry. Playfair's Postulate (i.e., the Euclidean parallel postulate) is replaced by the following statement: If l is a line and if P is a point not on l, then there exists AT LEAST 2 lines through P that are parallel to l.
1) This statement contradicts the Euclidean parallel postulate. Does this mean that none of the theorems from Euclidean geometry are valid in hyperbolic geometry?
My answer: surely not. Other Euclidean postulates are applied on hyperbolic geometry.
My problem: I don't know what hyperbolic geometry is. I am making a research about it but didn't (cnt. in c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But I didn't get a good site yet. It means I no nothing about it. Please give me a good site or good explanation about it. 2) The hyperbolic parallel postulate stated above implies that there are AT LEAST 2 lines through P that are parallel to l. Is it possible that there are "exactly 2 lines through P that are parallel to l" My answer: Yes, it is. in some special case, the problem is arranged that only 2 lines pass through P that are // to l.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i'll give you a model that would make you understand all hyperbolic gimme a sec to post :D PS: your answer is correct since both Euclid's and hyperbolic are two different type of geometry which are also independent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here are examples for models ,the Klein model, the Poincare Disk model, and the Poincare HalfPlane model. i'll describe the Poincare Disk model since its the easiest one to explain. let a unit circle be \(\lambda\), the circle points itself are not in hyperbolic geometry we call them ideal points, or points at infinity. undefined terms : Points: in the hyperbolic plane are interpreted to be the set of all interior points of \(\lambda\). Lines: in the hyperbolic plane are of two types: 1. The open diameters, that is diameters without endpoints. 2. The open arcs, that are portions inside \(\lambda\) of circles orthogonal to . These lines are called Poincare lines. (or open chords) other stuff can beinterpreted as the Eclids sense

NO, EXTREMELY NO, in Euclid lines defines as between two points there is a line, but n hyperbolic see i've stated two different type of lines only dw:1441574530904:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i see your point, ur saying diameters can be also line in Euclid's geometry, which also incorrect as there is no end point in lines of Euclid, you might call a segment but also wouldn't make sense as it has no end no start

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just think of hyperbolic as if it's something not related to Euclid's as long as you don't try to link them you would understand them better, okay ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hold on. In Euclid, he defined a line is a breadthless length. It doesn't relate to end points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1He gave the definition of a line while in hyperbolic geometry, they consider a line as an undefined term. Am I right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, ignore me, go ahead. Study the very new stuff is always hard. However, Since the question is about comparison, I have to link them to see whether the fifth different postulates leads to all postulates are different or not. Sorry, friend.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0undefined terms means it has no definition like (line has endless points which is something wrong to say), undefined does not exactly means not defined both in Euclid's and hyperbolic they consider points,and lines are undefined term to AVOID physical explanation of them, like how much thin the line should be? or could we see the point.. or such stuff, got this now ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see now you got the point :D what we might call open segment in Euclid is (sort of seen in the model as line) and lines in Euclid are not the same in hyperbolic segments are a cut off lines so this segment might not been defined in hyperbolic but here are things we might consider as segment in hyperbolic dw:1441575652342:dw dw:1441575678689:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hence, from point A , you can draw many "lines" perpendicular to the "line" of lambda. That is what the fifth postulate says in hyperbolic, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0parallel means ( there is no common points ) so in the last model i have stated, m  l and n  l so there are two different lines at least that are parallel to l from a point p.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha okay. 1) This statement contradicts the Euclidean parallel postulate. Does this mean that none of the theorems from Euclidean geometry are valid in hyperbolic geometry? My answer: surely not. Other Euclidean postulates are applied on hyperbolic geometry. my answer is : Hyperbolic geometry is, by definition, the geometry obtained by, assuming the axioms of neutral geometry and the negation of Hilbert's parallel axiom. and neutral geometry is valid in Euclid's. some of properties are the same in both hyperbolic and Euclid's but both are independent and not related to each other even we might understand the higher geometry more if we could compare them to Euclid's geometry. 2) The hyperbolic parallel postulate stated above implies that there are AT LEAST 2 lines through P that are parallel to l. Is it possible that there are "exactly 2 lines through P that are parallel to l" my answer is Universal Hyperbolic Theorem says there is at least two lines, so for each R in l , there corresponds a line through P that is parallel to l. Also, note that different points on l give rise to different parallel lines. so In hyperbolic geometry, for every line l and every point P not on l, there exist infinitely many lines through P and parallel to l.
