cover In Code : A Mathematical Journey by Sarah Flannery with David Flannery
Hardcover - 224 pages (April 2000)
At the age of 16, Sarah won the 1999 Irish Young Scientist of the Year award with her "Cayley-Purser algorithm", a highly innovative, speedy and secure system of encoding data on the Internet. Since then she has travelled the world and lectured, and had approaches from many computer companies and universities. In Code, written with her father David, tells the story of her life, mathematics and making codes.

cover Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture by Apostolos Doxiadis Paperback - 209 pages (20 March, 2000)
Uncle Petros is a family joke, but his young nephew suspects there is more to this ageing recluse, living alone in a suburb of Athens. He discovers Petros was once a celebrated mathematician, foolhardy enough to stake everything on solving a problem that defied proof for nearly three centuries - Goldbach's conjecture. If this might initially seem undramatic material for a novel, readers of Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Singh would surely disagree. What Doxiadis gives us is the fictional corollary of Singh's book: a beautifully imagined narrative that is both compelling as a story and highly revealing of a rarefied world of the intellect that few people will ever access. Without ever alienating the reader, he demonstrates the enchantments of mathematics as well as the ambition, envy and search for glory that permeate even this most abstract of pursuits.
