Some brief overview of this book

Where can you... ...hear an old man in a nursing home tell of how he disproved Goldbach's Conjecture as part of an undergraduate research project? ... get inside the mind of James Clerk Maxwell as he discovers electro-magnetic waves?

...witness the 19th century's greatest mathematician finally get the credit she was denied by sexism and murder? In Reality Conditions, a coll Where can you... ...hear an old man in a nursing home tell of how he disproved Goldbach's Conjecture as part of an undergraduate research project?

... get inside the mind of James Clerk Maxwell as he discovers electro-magnetic waves? ...witness the 19th century's greatest mathematician finally get the credit she was denied by sexism and murder? In Reality Conditions, a collection of short stories spanning a variety of genres, you can share in these and other fictional mathematical experiences.

Each story is a mathematical journey designed to entertain, educate and tantalize. There is something here for everyone: humor to drama, the little details to the big picture, science fiction to true histories.  Through these stories, those with little mathematical background will encounter some of the most interesting parts of the field of mathematics for the first time.  But even professional mathematicians will be captivated by ideas that take us to the limits of knowledge, addressing the questions of how mathematics is related to the human mind and how it is related to reality in ways that only fiction can. The book is perfect for leisure reading, but it is also well suited for use at schools and universities.  Teachers in traditional math courses can select individual stories to their students.  Or, with the growing importance of interdisciplinary courses and quantitative literacy across the curriculum, the entire book could help to form the basis for a creative course on "Mathematics in Fiction".

Join one of the leading experts in the area of mathematical fiction as he takes us on a whirlwind tour of mathematics, both real and imaginary.
