"Geometry today: Five short novels"
Many parts of geometry share one or more of the following features.
- They are visual and simple to state.
- They still are open, or at least are only partially solved.
- When solved, the solution is not only hard and technical but uses essentially one or more mathematical concept(s), more or less abstract and apparently far away from the original problem.
