Book Description
In January 1999, Sarah Flannery, a sports-loving teenager from Blarney in
County Cork, Ireland was awarded Ireland's Young Scientist of the Year for
her extraordinary research and discoveries in Internet cryptography.
< . . . . >
A memoir in mathematics, it is all about how a girl next door, nurtured by
her family, moved from the simple math puzzles that were the staple of
dinnertime conversation to prime numbers, the Sieve of Eratosthenes,
Fermat's Little Theorem, Googols- and finally into her breathtaking
algorithm. Parallel with each step is a modest girl's own self-discovery
- her values, her burning curiosity, the joy of persistence, and, above
all, her love for her family.
