The Asses' Bridge with pain;
A superficies to me
Is anything but plane.

O Bejants! blessed, beardless men,
Who strive with Euclid in your attics,
For worlds I would not taste again
The deep delights of Mathematics.

But he opened out the hinges,
Pushed and pulled the joints and hinges,
Till it looked all squares and oblongs,
Like a complicated figure
In the Second Book of Euclid.
"Hiawatha's Photographing " by Lewis Carroll
No proposition Euclid wrote,
No formulae the text-books know,
Will turn the bullet from your coat,
Or ward the tulwar's downward blow
Strike hard who cares — shoot straight who can —
The odds are on the cheaper man.
"Arithmetic on the Frontier" by Rudyard Kipling
He could talk on any subject - from the weather and the crops
To astronomy and Euclid, and he never minded stops;
And the lack of a companion didn't lay him on the shelf,
For he'd stand before a looking-glass and argue with himself.

In science:

We simulate the supernova events as they would be observed by a EUCLID-like telescope with its two imagers, assuming those would be equipped with 4 visible and 3 near infrared swappable filters.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
Using conservative assumptions and Planck priors, we find that a 18 month survey would yield constraints on the dark energy equation of state comparable to the cosmic shear approach in EUCLID: a variable two-parameter equation of state can be constrained to ∼ 0.03 at z ≃ 0.3.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
Provided swappable filters can be accommodated on EUCLID, distances to supernovae can be measured from space and contribute to obtain the most precise constraints on dark energy properties.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
We propose here a space-based supernova survey that could plausibly be implemented on the EUCLID pro ject, provided a filter wheel is accommodated into the visible camera.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
The EUCLID baseline set consists of 3 NIR filters (as assumed here) and a single “r+i+z” visible filter.
