A human scientist invents a new branch of mathematics, "continuum calculus", as the basis for a stardrive. At one point, he compares his mathematical constructions with those of an alien species who have developed their own continuum calculus.
I have not read this book; I only virtually flipped through the pages of an electronic version so as to get the general idea. It seems to me that this book is selfpublished and has not sold many copies, but the Kindle version had wide readership (apparently because it had a good pricepoint) and generated mixed reviews.
If you have read this book, please help me and the other visitors of this site out by telling us what you thought of it. Was it well written? How interesting is the fictional mathematics? Is it worth the money? Does the mathematical component continue in the sequels?
Thanks to Gary Miller for bringing this book to my attention.
