Euclidean geometry is otherwise known as plane geometry because it
applies only to geometry of flat planes.
A half space is a region bounded by a single straight line of infinite
extent, such as a planar area to one side of one of the coordinate axes.
You really oughta know these already, you probably learned about
Euclidean geometry in high school.
