a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|One of the three principle characters in this book is a mathematician who works on quasicrystals (and, like the other two main characters, she is also a dwarf). Aside from that, I'm afraid I know very little about this book. It sounds quite interesting and has received on nice review at amazon.co.uk, but the book is not easily available in the USA where I live. If you have read it and can comment on the mathematical content, I would very much appreciate hearing from you. Click here.
The author has a few brief comments on her Website concerning her selection of the area of research for the mathematician. Click here to read it (and scroll down to the beautiful picture of Dutch tulip fields).
