** Alice in Mathland**, is an
entertaining and instructional 170-page tale of Alice's journey through
Mathland, where she learns math from an eccentric Yellow Pig guide. I wrote
it as my undergraduate thesis (in math and creative writing) at Simon's
Rock from September 1999 to May 2000.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: Why a yellow pig?

A: The yellow pig is a reference to HCSSiM, an excellent summer program for high
schoolers interested in mathematics.

Q: Where can I read more math fiction?

A: The most complete list of math fiction I know of can be found here.

Q: What formats is *Alice in Mathland* available in?

A: The easiest way to read it is as a PDF. For
HTML, TeX, and DVI, see the table below. Note that you'll need the class definitions if you want to tex the
document yourself.

Q: I think I found an error. How can I report it?

A: Email me and I'll add it to the list of known errata.

Q: Can I re-distribute, modify, or translate this?

A: Possibly. Email me to discuss further.

Q: I'm a Simon's Rock student and want to write my thesis in LaTeX. Can you help?

A: A stub thesis that satisfies the style requirements is here.
