Some Iterative Geometry
Jim Fowler (Ohio State)

Storrs Campus

When A, B, and C are three points inside a circle and P is a point on the circle, draw successive lines from these points as follows: a line through P and A, which meets the circle at P', then a line through P' and B, which meets the circle at P'', then a line through P'' and C, which meets the circle at P''', and now repeat this process starting from P''' (through A, then B, then C, repeated). What happens? In this talk we'll see what the answer might be, by using hyperbolic geometry to study this question that is at first about Euclidean geometry.
