A novel in which a teenager learns about discrete mathematics (e.g. graph theory, the Traveling Salesman Problem, Euler circuits, etc.) by interacting with a computer program. It was published by the academic publishing house Springer in 2004, but somehow eluded my notice until Vijay Fafat notified me of it in 2022. (Thank you, Vijay!) It seems to be available in both the original German and in an Italian translation.

Exciting News: The total number of works of mathematical fiction listed in this database recently reached a milestone. The 1,500th entry is The Man of Forty Crowns by Voltaire. Thanks to Vijay Fafat for writing the summary of that work (and so many others). I am also grateful to everyone who has contributed to this website. Heck, I'm grateful to everyone who visited the site. Thank you!
