a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|A bittersweet romance/thriller about a young woman mathematician in
Portugal spying for the British during World War II. There is a lot of
interesting stuff in this novel if you're looking at the romance or the
history (especially the attempts of the Nazis to develop nuclear weapons),
but as far as math goes I'm afraid there's not much more than a few
uninspired descriptions of why our heroine chose to go into mathematics.

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.
