Spherical Trigonometry

Currently, my knowledge of mathematics includes topics through Calculus, Number Theory, and a bit of Linear Algebra. However, what I'm really interested in learning is spherical trigonometry.

I understand that spherical trig has diverse apps in astronomy, but that's about the extent of my knowledge... for now ;)

Anyone here know spherical trig? I think a general overview would be very helpful. Maybe an example problem or two?

Any help is appreciated.

You know, nowadays most of the introductory questions in forums are getting answered by google anyway.

So you can easily skip those here.:wink:

Thanks, I will be exploring this further via Google. But I have found that many bright people who visit these forums can also provide some great insights for learning various topics, and often these insights cannot be found in a textbook or web search... just good ol' experience :smile:

However, I will keep this in mind. Thanks!
