|Sneakers (1992) || Phil Alden Robinson (director) |
|Complex espionage story, more about computers than mathematics.
However, mathematics is clearly an underlying theme and in one scene
the mysterious mathematician Gunter Janek lectures on mathematical
aspects of crytpography (using some technical terms but not really
saying anything substantial).
"It's worth noting that Len Adleman
(the A in RSA, and himself a number
theorist among other things) consulted
on the Janek lecture scene."

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.
