This semester I take a course of affine geometry at my university. Since I can't understand everything from the class and I'm the type who like to study at home, I would like you to give me some resources/materials/pdf/video tutorials/ and so on from where I could learn this subject. I would also like to mention that last semester I studied linear algebra so I know about vector spaces, euclidian spaces and so on. Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ You're taking a whole course on affine geometry? That's pretty awesome -- usually affine geometry is just a stepping stone to projective geometry. What book are you using for your class? $\endgroup$ – user137731 Feb 20 '17 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with @Bye_World : affine geometry is not a very rich subject, unless you mean "differential affine geometry", which is completely different. $\endgroup$ – Jean Marie Feb 20 '17 at 18:46
  • $\begingroup$ I ain't using any book for my class. The instructor is responsable for our lessons. So far I know what affine spaces are, what linear combination affines are and some theorems and demonstrations about those. $\endgroup$ – Raducu Mihai Feb 21 '17 at 0:06
  • $\begingroup$ @RaducuMihai Well, I don't know of any books specifically on affine geometry (that's not to say there aren't any). I learned about affine spaces from Audin's Geometry and Kaplansky's Linear Algebra and Geometry. I enjoyed both books but neither is specifically about affine geometry (Audin has a lot more on it than Kaplansky however). $\endgroup$ – user137731 Feb 21 '17 at 0:35
  • $\begingroup$ Any help is welcome. I will try these and see if it is what I need or not. Thank you for your help @Bye_World $\endgroup$ – Raducu Mihai Feb 21 '17 at 0:39
