Projective Collineations in Perspective Art
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we show that any projective collineation is equivalent to the composition of four perspective collineations. In addition, we give our equivalence an interpretation from perspective art. A projective collineation is a bijection from one pro- jective space (whose elements are points and lines) back to itself that sends points to points and lines to lines and that preserves incidences. A perspective collineation is a projective collineation that is perspective from a point and perspective from a line. Our proof uses Desarguesnull Theorem and the Fundamental Theorem of Projective Geometry to construct a series of perspective collineations.
