Projective geometry is closely related to perspective geometry. These types of geometry originated with artists around the 14th century.

**Projective Geometry** is the study of the *descriptive properties* of geometric figures. It deals with objects/shapes that have been distorted/skewed by perspective transformations.

**The Projective Plane:**

1.) Homogeneous coordinates

2.) The Principle of Duality

3.) Pencil of lines

4.) Cross Ratio

5.) Conics

6.) Absolute Point

7.) Collineations

8.) Laguerre formula
