a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|Mori is a popular author of mystery novels in Japan and a former professor of engineering at Nagoya University. Li-Chang Hung, who has read the books translated into Chinese, has suggested that I add some of them to my list of mathematical fiction. Unfortunately, I cannot say much about these books or their mathematical content since I have not read them. Just from the title, I have guessed that "Mathematical Goodbye" is an example of Mori's mathematical fiction. If anyone can provide additional information (or tell me which others of Mori's many works of fiction should also be listed here) I would be very grateful.

mathematical fiction from the list. To see the entire list or to see more
works of mathematical fiction, return to the Homepage.)|
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.
