    • Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. Euclidean geometry in particular is geometry in its classical sense. It includes the study of points, lines, planes, angles, triangles, congruence, similarity, solid figures, circles, and analytic geometry. Euclidean geometry also has applications in computer science, crystallography, and various branches of modern mathematics.
