Alice in Wonderland & maths? Answered
In New Scientist No2739/40/41 (Christmas 2009) is an article by Melaine Bayley (DPhil Oxford) in which she explains how Lewis Carroll (Charles Dogson) is taking a stab at the new mathematics of the time in his famous work.
For example, the Mad Hatter's Tea Party is related to Hamilton's maths. Interesing stuff (to me anyway...)
