La primera persona que desarrollo de manera consciente una geometria no euclidiana, entendiendola precisamente como una nueva geometria, fue el matematico ruso Nicolai Ivanovic Lobachevsky (1792-1856) que en 1829 publico en el Kazan Bulletin un articulo que desplegaba una nueva geometria siguiendo la misma direccion que habia trabajado Saccheri un siglo antes, afirmando la pluralidad de paralelas por un punto exterior a una recta.
The curved N-body problem has its roots in the work of Janos Bolyai, [2], and Nikolai Lobachevsky, [28].
(6.) In his study of the Mobius strip, Clifford Pickover notes the phenomenon of simultaneous discoveries in mathematics and science, citing hyperbolic geometry (Janos Bolyai and Nikolai Lobachevsky), calculus (Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz), and the theory of evolution (Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace) (Pickover 29).

Russian mathematician Lobachevsky (1792-1856) composed Pangeometry the year before he died as a summary and culmination of his life's work in non-Euclidean geometry, now called Lobachevskian geometry.
Only a few years passed before non- Euclidean geometry was rediscovered independently by Nikolai Lobachevsky and Janos Bolyai.
Taking the same partition of the Lobachevsky plane [H.sub.2], we can see that each piece [B.sub.i] does contain an unbounded centrally symmetric subset (for such a set just take any hyperbolic line lying in [B.sub.i]).
Esto se advierte claramente en los Grundlagen der Geometrie, donde "jugando" con los axiomas, Hilbert obtiene numerosos resultados: geometrias no arquimedianas, nuevos teoremas acerca de la continuidad, una nueva caracterizacion topologica del plano, una caracterizacion de la geometria euclidiana y de la geometria de Bolyai y Lobachevsky mediante grupos de desplazamientos, un analisis del papel de los teoremas de Desargues y de Pascal en la coordenatizacion del espacio, un estudio comparativo de las distintas geometrias entre si, y una investigacion de los medios requeridos para demostrar ciertos teoremas.

to seek Lobachevskian space." Nikolai Lobachevsky, the nineteenth-century mathematician who first proposed that space has more than three dimensions--and thereby anticipated Albert Einstein's General Relativity, in which time is the fourth dimension of space--was an abiding influence on Khlebnikov.
Infallibility is clearly a lie, as the engineer Yevgeny Zamyatin knew; his interest in Nicolai Lobachevsky's non-Euclidean geometry enabled him to translate the abstract thought of mathematics, where the imaginary square root of minus one is part of the rational number system, into a social theory.
