|This debut novel from SF superstar Anderson explains that the human
intelligence is far more powerful than we have thus far seen. In fact,
once we escape from the effects of a force field that is limiting our
mental abilities, our intelligence takes a "quantum leap". The
only mathematical content is a paragraph detailing the thoughts of a
student who independently derives the idea of calculus while working on his
algebra homework. |
Actually there is more math content here.
There is mention of solving systems of nonlinear pde in one's head.
There is mention of Maxwell's equations and a book by Coddington.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
