Available for the first time in published form, Groups and Geometry presents the Oxford Mathematical Institute notes for undergraduates and first year postgraduates. The content is guided by the Oxford syllabus but includes much more material than is included on the syllabus. This book is about the measurement of symmetry: covering groups and geometry with the symbiotic relationship between the two more than justifying the union. A number of exercises are included in this sylish text to help the reader gain a full understanding of this branch of mathematics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'develops a comprehensive group-theoretic approach to affine, projective and inversive geometry ... It ends with a fascinating chapter on the group theory behind the Rubik cube.' Ian Stewart, New Scientist
'Both parts contain a number of exercises that will be invaluable to any reader wishing to gain a fuller understanding of this area of mathematics.' Extrait de L'Enseignement Mathematique, T. 40 1994
The book can be recommended warmly for any interested reader. "Monatshefte fur Mathematik No.3 1996.
delightful book ... The group theory is directed towards group actions, but all the basic material is there. * Mathematika, 41 (1994) *
