The Last Theorem

The Last Theorem tells the story of one man's mathematical obsession and celebrates the human spirit and the scientific method. It is a gripping intellectual thriller in which humanity, facing extermination from all-but-omnipotent aliens, the Grand Galactics, must overcome differences of politics and religion and come together . . . or perish.

A stunning collaboration by Arthur C. Clarke and Frederik Pohl.
