Limits along lines with common ends in Hyperbolic Geometry

D. Ruoff and J. Shilleto

Drusbergstr. 17, 8810 Horgen, Switzerland; 3440 Yosemite Ave, El Cerrito, CA, USA 94530

Abstract: Let $P$ be a point outside a pair $a, b$ of boundary parallel lines in the hyperbolic plane, and consider the lengths of the segments that are collinear with $P$ and join $a$ with $b$. The limit length of these segments is determined in a new, elementary way, and the variation of lengths is found using coordinates developed from Hilbert's Arithmetic of Ends.
