|This debut novel from SF superstar Anderson explains that the human
intelligence is far more powerful than we have thus far seen. In fact,
once we escape from the effects of a force field that is limiting our
mental abilities, our intelligence takes a "quantum leap". The
only mathematical content is a paragraph detailing the thoughts of a
student who independently derives the idea of calculus while working on his
algebra homework. |
Actually there is more math content here.
There is mention of solving systems of nonlinear pde in one's head.
There is mention of Maxwell's equations and a book by Coddington.

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.
