a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|A novel about the life of Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll). I have not
read it, and it most certainly focuses more on his affections for Alice than on
his mathematics, but I suppose there must be at least some math in it!
Please let me know if you've read it. |
Including the Law of gravity, and other bits of equations; these relate in 'Stll she Haunts me'- to Charles Dodgson's feeling of seperation and his obsession with alice. This is a beautifully written novel, but don't get your hopes up if you're reading this for the mathematical value.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
