Having introduced Sherlock Holmes' most famous enemy, Professor
Moriarty, as a mathematician in an earlier
story, Doyle provides us with just a small glimpse of his
mathematical genius (as opposed to his criminal genius) by mentioning
his thesis "The Dynamics of an Asteroid" which brought him acclaim in
the mathematical/astronomical community. Three other stories (by other
authors) probe the content of this thesis a little further: Isaac Asimov's "The Ultimate Crime", "The Adventure of the Russian Grave" and Ruth Berman's "Professor and Colonel".
