Once Upon a Prime The Wondrous Connections Between Mathematics and Literature

by Sarah Hart

Come join us at the Dôme Café for the second meeting of the #MathsBookClubWA for 2024!

We often think of mathematics and literature as polar opposites. But what if, instead, they were fundamentally linked? In this insightful, laugh-out-loud funny book, Once Upon a Prime, Professor Sarah Hart shows us the myriad connections between maths and literature, and how understanding those connections can enhance our enjoyment of both.

Did you know, for instance, that Moby-Dick is full of sophisticated geometry? That James Joyce’s stream-of-consciousness novels are deliberately checkered with mathematical references? That George Eliot was obsessed with statistics? That Jurassic Park is undergirded by fractal patterns? That Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wrote mathematician characters?

Grab a coffee, pull up a chair, and let’s dive into our latest book pick. No need to be a maths genius, just bring your curiosity and enthusiasm. See you there!
