Full Professor for Geometry and Visualization at Technical University Munich. Research in combinatorial, computational and dynamic geometry, automated geometric theorem proving and visualization. Author of the dynamic geometry program Cinderella and of the interactive visualization portal Mathe-Vital. Cinderella was awarded the Multimedia Innovation Award, the European Academic Software Award and the Deutsche Bildungssoftwarepreis. Mathe-Vital won the renowned MedidaPrix in 2008.
From the reviews: "The author covers most of the traditional topics in real projective geometry, and extends the concepts through complex projective geometry. He provides the reader with concise proofs, clear and insightful presentations, and a coherent development of the topic. Richter-Gebert presents algebraic, visual, and diagrammatic approaches to unify the subject, while his fresh writing style make for a very readable text. ... Additionally, the student and teacher will enjoy the quotations introducing each section. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and faculty." (R. L. Pour, Choice, Vol. 49 (5), January, 2012)
