Ten Problems in Geometry

  • Moritz W. Schmitt
  • Günter M. Ziegler


Geometry is a field of knowledge, but it is at the same time an active field of research—our understanding of space, about shapes, about geometric structures develops in a lively dialogue, where problems arise, new questions are asked every day. Some of the problems are settled nearly immediately, some of them need years of careful study by many authors, still others remain as challenges for decades. In this chapter, we describe ten problems waiting to be solved.
