What topic should I base a non-Euclidean geometry paper on?

  1. Dec 17, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A short paper 12-16 pages I'm also fairly new to this topic

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried to ecplain it's application using the Robertson walker mrttuc but it ended upmlooking too much like a physics psper:/

    General Relativity, or if you want to keep it simple, flight paths.

    Flight paths use non-euclidean geometry, since the earth is a sphere. The shortest distance between 2 points is not a line, it's a circle segment.
