I think this needs clarification, as several people seem to be confused:
In three dimensions, there are three classes of constant curvature geometries . All are based on the first four of Euclid's postulates , but each uses its own version of the parallel postulate . The "flat" geometry of everyday intuition is called Euclidean geometry (or parabolic geometry), and the non-Euclidean geometries are called hyperbolic geometry (or Lobachevsky-Bolyai-Gauss geometry) and elliptic geometry (or Riemannian geometry).
Description This course teaches techniques for the design and analysis of efficient algorithms, emphasizing methods useful in practice.

About Massachusetts Institute of Technology The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), founded in 1861, is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is one of the foremost U.S. institutions in science and technology.
Behavior of lines with a common perpendicular in each of the three types of geometry In mathematics , non-Euclidean geometry is a small set of geometries based on axioms closely related to those specifying Euclidean geometry .
Relplot constructs high-resolution PostScript or PDF plots of the solutions to equations on two variables. Unlike most other plotters, it can handle general equations and inequations, not just functions, and it can plot multiple equations at once.
A competition to find a replacement for one of the gold-standard computer security algorithms used in almost all secure, online transactions just heated up. The list of possibilities for Secure Hash Algorithm-3 , or SHA-3, has been narrowed down to five finalists. They now face the onslaught of an international community of "cryptanalysts" – who will analyse the algorithms for weaknesses – before just one is due to be selected as the winner in 2012.
