The previous characterization allows us to obtain, in section 5, the property of approximate contraction for affine mappings.
Some of the problems can be met in basic courses of Linear algebra and Geometry, where they serve as real-world problems to build and fasten the understanding of the notion of geometry mapping and the connection between affine mappings and matrices.
They cover the basics of Euclidean space, elementary geometrical figures and their properties, symmetries of the plane and of space (including affine mappings and centroids, projections, central dilations and translations, plane transformations and discrete and finite subgroups), hyperbolic geometry (including the Poincare and disc models) and spherical geometry.
He calls upon abstract algebra to demonstrate that those local-composition symmetrics and automorphisms that are affine mappings always possess a group structure.
