|A film about a British mathematician trying to break the German codes during World War II. (So, add this to the growing list of works of mathematical fiction inspired by Alan Turing!) I must admit that I have not yet seen the film, but you've got to love its tagline:
|(quoted from Sebastian)
We can't tell you what he does (it's an international secret) but he does it with 100 girls... and does it the best!
|More information about this work can be found at www.imdb.com.

mathematical fiction from the list. To see the entire list or to see more

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.
