|Published in an Italian comic book, this story (whose title translates as "Levemberg's Lemma") was written by Abate and illustrated by Natali. The author describes it for us as follows:
A (possibly successful, if I may say so myself) attempt of telling a story involving some real mathematics
(chaotic dynamical systems) and believable mathematicians, and touching on larger issues like
responsability, friendship, the ownership of mathematical results, bad financial deals and hockey games.

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.
