Octavio Alberto Agustín Aquino|
It is a kind of bildungsroman narrated by a sexagenarian mathematician who makes a mathematical discovery in the verge of the year 2000. Of course, there is the detail of considering the year 2000 the beginning of the 21th century, and certain emphasis in Calculus and Analysis as "advanced mathematics". It is not a "page-turner", but it is plentiful of interesting philosophical reflections.
This novel, originally published in Spanish by Plaza y Valdes in 1988, also appeared in Dutch as De mathematicus and in German as Der Mathematiker in 1995 and 1996 respectively.

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
