La théorie des lignes parallèles de Johann Heinrich Lambert

Abstract : The memoir "Theory of parallel lines" (1766) by Johannes Heinrich Lambert is one of the founding texts of hyperbolic geometry, even though his author conceived it as an attempt to show that this geometry does not exist. In fact, Lambert developed that theory with the hope of finding a contradiction. In doing so, he obtained several fundamental results of hyperbolic geometry. This was sixty years before the first writings of Lobachevsky and Bolyai appeared in print. This book contains the first complete translation of Lambert's memoir as well as mathematical and historical commentaries.
