a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|A very short story in which a knot theorist playing a practical joke on his overly serious son lies (in both senses of the word) on his deathbed and tells him "The solution to the Kaiserling Conjecture is in my papers". Considering that the whole story is barely a page long, there isn't any more to say. But, this story appears in the author's short story collection "Inherited Disorders: Stories, Parables & Problems".
