Example text

Si nous considerons un deplacement quelconque, il ne sera pas, en general, echangeable avec tous les deplacements du faisceau, mais nous decouvrirons bientot qu'il existe des deplacements qui sont echangeables avec tous ceux du faisceau rotatif et qu'ils forment un sousgroupe plus vaste qui peut etre appele sous-groupe helicoidal. (Combinaisons de rotations autour d'un axe et de translations paralleles a cet axe). Cela est evident si l'on observe qu'une ligne droite peut glisser Ie long d'elle-meme.

C'est une propriete du deplacement, mais a premiere vue il n'apparait pas que ce soit une propriete fonnelle. II semble qu'elle fasse partie des caracteres qualitatifs des sensations per~ues. Nous allons voir cependant que nous pouvons en degager une propriete fonnelle et pour rendre rna pensee plus claire, je vais comparer ce qui se passe dans ce cas avec ce qui arrive dans une autre circonstance qui est analogue en apparence. Je suppose qu'un certain corps se meut devant mes yeux d'une maniere quelconque, mais qu'une certaine region de ce corps est peinte d'une couleur suffisamment unifonne pour ne pas laisser discerner d'ombres.

La proposition qui en tiendra lieu sera I'affirmation de I'existence d'un sous-groupe invariant dont tous les deplacements sont echangeables et qui est forme de toutes les translations. C'est la ce qui determine notre choix en faveur de la geometrie d'Euclide, parce que Ie groupe qui correspond a la geometrie de Lobatchevsky ne contient pas un tel sousgroupe invariant. NOMBRE DES DIMENSIONS Dans la theorie ordinaire des groupes, nous distinguons I'ordre et Ie degre. Suppo8Ons d'abord Ie cas Ie plus simple, celui d'un groupe forme par differentes permutations entre certains objets.
