|A novel in which a teenager learns about discrete mathematics (e.g. graph theory, the Traveling Salesman Problem, Euler circuits, etc.) by interacting with a computer program. It was published by the academic publishing house Springer in 2004, but somehow eluded my notice until Vijay Fafat notified me of it in 2022. (Thank you, Vijay!) It seems to be available in both the original German and in an Italian translation.

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.
