An example of parallel lines in hyperbolic space

Hyperbolic geometry (also known as saddle geometry) is a Non-Euclidean geometry that is used for measuring saddle-shaped space (similar to the shape of a Pringle chip). In hyperbolic space, a triangle's angles added up are always less than 180°.

In hyperbolic geometry, triangles with the same angles have equal areas.
