|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."

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
