Fiction Featuring Math

Here’s a nifty list: fiction that features math. Site owner Alex Kasman says, “The Mathematical Fiction Homepage is my attempt to collect information about all significant references to mathematics in fiction.” Well, he’s certainly making a thorough job of it. You can look at the complete list here. You can also search by title or by author. Starting in 414 B.C.E. with Aristophanes’ The Birds and ending with books forthcoming in 2008, the list encompasses such books as Stephen Baxter’s Godel’s Sunflowers, Robert J. Sawyer’s Factoring Humanity, Mark Cohen’s The Fractal Murders, and Matt Selman’s The Simpsons: Girls Just Want to Have Sums. Via Rebecca’s Pocket.

How cool is that! I wonder if the "Good Math Bad Math" blogger knows about this site.

Does the list include "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time", which includes Bob May and chaos theory?

Isn't it great? It does include The Curious Incident.

I wasn't aware of the Good Math Bad Math blog; it sounds interesting.
