"Five peopleincluding an Australian Air Force computer operator, a Mexican engineering professor, a New York housewife, a Colombian Special Forces officer, and an English mathematicianare invited to help save the world.". I'm afraid I haven't gotten around to reading it yet so All I know, from reading the sample pages at Amazon, is that it has something to do with the recordings from the space probe Voyager emanating from inside Ayers Rock (Uluru) in Australia!! I don't know how significant the math is. But then, isn't that what the internet is for. You, reading these words right now, have you read "The Rock"? If so, please help me out by telling me more about this book! Contributed by

The Rock is a Terminatorstyle novel that employs the skills of a exmilitary special forces major, mining engineer from New Mexico, child prodigy female physicist and female mathematician. The mathematician utilizes statistical projections to predict future economic/world events. There is no direct mathematics except some discussion of statistical projections using probabilities. In the Country of the Blind by Michael Flynn is a much better novel about statistical projection especially if it includes Flynn's submissions to Analog magazine.
