A mathematical love story.
Once upon a time, a clever young physics student with a penchant for geometry shared a curious mathematical observation with her friends. Little did she know that her work would fan the flames of development for a rather new mathematical sub-discipline. Ultimately, it would lead her on a journey across three continents, complete with triumphs, turmoil, excitement, mathematics and, most importantly, love.
