|An astronaut is stranded alone on Mars and must figure out how to survive until he can be rescued.
My wife and I both loved this "hard SF" novel (soon to be a movie). But, we disagreed about whether it was mathematical fiction. I read it without even considering adding it to this database and then passed it to her. When she read it, she noted that the protagonist had to do lots of calculations to save his own life and wondered why it wasn't here.
So, I'm curious to know what you think. First, if you haven't read The Martian, you should. It is wonderful. Then, once you have, please write to let me know if you think it should be in this database. (Thanks!)
