Why Study Geometry?

Geometry has been found to be much more than just a way to find the area of an octagon. With the two theories of relativity and now super string theories, geometry has been elevated to the forefront. All of the forces of physics have been shown to be dependent on their geometry. From the Riemann geometry of relativity to the Calabi-Yao spaces of superstrings, geometry has been vital to the most cherished advances in science.
