Questions on hyperbolic geometry, the geometry on manifolds with negative curvature.

The prototypical example of hyperbolic geometry in two dimensions of Gauss-Lobachevsky-Bolyai in which the parallel postulate of Euclidean geometry is replaced by a new postulate of at least 2 parallel lines through an external point not on the given line with sum of interior angles of a geodesic triangle smaller than $\pi$ radians.
