The ancient Greeks struggled with the concept of a horn angle, the "angle" formed by the intersection of two curves. The only information I find in Mathworld is that horn angles are examples of non-Archimedean geometry. Where can I find out more about them? What work has been done on them, and what is the current state of knowledge on them?

Since they are part of non-Archimedean geometry, can they be understood using the hyperreal numbers or some other non-standard model of the first-order theory of real closed fields?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in Advance.
