Literature and Mathematics: An Attempt at an Inter-Thematic Analysis of Aposto/os Doxiades Novel Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture


  • Elizabeth Kefallinos


This paper attempts an inter-thematic analysis of the book Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture. The paper constitutes only an introduction to a theme that is both huge and relatively new in the field of literature. The messages come from both nationally and internationally distinguished mathematicians who have occupied themselves with the writing of a significant number of books (both novels and poetic collections). Indicatively we refer to Wild Numbers by the Dutch writer Philibert Schogt, Turing's Smile by Christos Papadimitriou, along with Uncle Petros and the Goldbach's Conjecture.
