Another fine math you've got me into--

This book provides various mathematical problems in the form of fiction that explore various curious wrinkles in mathematics and the reader goes along with them.

Renormalisation of curlicues

The recursively spiralling patterns drawn in the complex plane by the values of SL( tau )= Sigma Ln=1 exp(i pi tau n2) as L to infinity with tau fixed in the range 0<or= tau <or=1, depend on the
