While it was a great read, and grandly mind bending due to the spacetime bending, the math content is really minimal beyond advanced jargon that sounds cool. The idea that in curved spacetime a circle's circumference isn't a certain popular number times the radius  yes that idea is there, but really the novel is about Humankind's history and future in a very big way. The seemingly infinite space tunnel in the asteroid plays a role similar to the cosmic trip in Contact  a mechanism to connect faraway places, times. Still, readers who like a bit of technical math or physics jargon will enjoy its occasional appearances the way a fine diner enjoys parsley decorating a bowl of soup.
