UnivHypGeom3: Pappus' theorem and the cross ratio

Pappus' theorem is the first and foremost result in projective geometry. Another of his significant contributions was the notion of cross ratio of four points on a line, or of four lines through a point. We discuss various important results: such as the Cross ratio theorem, asserting the invariance of the cross ratio under a projection, and Chasles theorem for four points on a conic. We show that the notion of cross ratio also works for four concurrent lines.CONTENT SUMMARY: Pappus' theorem @00:52 cross ratio @02:46 cross ratio transformation theorem @11:08 cross ratio theorem @13:54 Chasles theorem @16:19 The cross ratio is the most important? invariant in projective geometry 9:09
