Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone explain the difference between Euclidean and Non Euclidean Space and how does one classify a space as Euclidean or Non Euclidean?? I heard about Gauss coming up with Non Euclidean Spaces when he was doing surveying of a piece of land. I am wondering what the word 'FLAT' really means??Any examples or references would be appreciated..

Regards

Shankar
