Affine geometry is a special case of projective geometry, where the vanishing point [7] is located at infinity.
Inversive geometry is the first non-Euclidean geometry in the sense that it violates Euclid's assumption that parallel lines never meet.[8] Inversive geometry shows the way the interior of a circle is symmetrical to its exterior [Ogilvy 1969].

 AllRefer.com - circle (Mathematics) - Encyclopedia
Greek geometry left many unsolved problems about circles, including the problem of squaring the circle, i.e., constructing a square with an area equal to that of a given circle, using only a straight edge and compass; it was finally proved impossible in the late 19th cent.
In modern mathematics the circle is the basis for such theories as inversive geometry and certain non-Euclidean geometries.
In religion and art it frequently symbolizes heaven, eternity, or the universe.

 Geometric structures: History and Development
The classical geometry of Euclidean space had developed branches, such as the inversive geometry based on properties of circles, or projective geometry dealing with perspective.
In Klein's approach, a geometry is the study of quantities which are unchanged by the transformations preserving the geometry, such as rigid motions in Euclidean geometry, or angle-preserving transformations in conformal geometry.
Using the theory of Lie groups as the basis for the infinitesimal geometry (like the quadratic functions defined infinitesimally on Riemannian and Lorentzian manifolds), geometric structures could be defined using extremely general local symmetries.

 Definition of Conformal geometry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
In mathematics, conformal geometry is the study of the set of angle-preserving (conformal) transformations on a "Euclidean-like space with a point added at infinity", or a "Minkowski-like space with a couple of points added at infinity".
That is, the setting is a compactification of a familiar space; the geometry is concerned with the implications of preserving angles.
For the Euclidean space case, two-dimensional conformal geometry is that of the Riemann sphere.

 Geometry by David A. Brannan [ISBN: 0521591937] - Find Cheap Textbook Prices & Save BIG
During the last third of the book (the chapters on hyperbolic and spherical geometry), some basic familiarity with trigonometric functions and hyperbolic functions is assumed (cosh, sinh, tanh, and their inverses).
In the eighth chapter all of these geometries are demonstrated to be special cases of the Kleinian vieuw of geometry: that is, every geometry can be seen as consisting of the invariants of a specific group of transformations of the 2 dimensional plane into itself.
And, by passing to the more abstract Projective geometry, you can express the abstract idea of 'conic' by giving just one quadratic curve, be it a parabola, ellipse or hyperbola, by the pair (Qu, P), whereby P is the group of all projective transformations.

 A Science as a Geometry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Many new geometries were soon invented: non-Euclidean geometry (1826), affine geometry, projective geometry, conformal geometry, inversive geometry, Riemann's geometry (1854), and topological geometry.
Klein showed (see section 3.5) that the Euclidean Geometry could be seen as an evolutionary sequence of more and more complex geometry: topological, projective, similarity group, Euclidean geometry, each one being a sub-group of symmetry transformation as the preceding one.
This geometry has to be a framework for the expression of the image structural hierarchies.
