Welcome to 笑わない数学者 - Mathematical Goodbye (S&M Vol.3)

This book is part of the Saikawa & Moe (S&M) Series Book Club. Join the Saikawa & Moe (S&M) Series Book Club here!

This is Volume 3 in the Saikawa & Moe (S&M) series by MORI Hiroshi.
Volume 1: すべてがFになる - The Perfect Insider
Volume 2: 冷たい密室と博士たち - Doctors in Isolated Room
These have already been read by the club.

Despite this book being Vol. 3, it shouldn’t be much of a problem to read it without knowing the other volumes. There seem to be some back references to persons we met in the preceding books but it’s probably not too involved. In any case, if you are wondering about anything while reading this book, you are of course free to ask and somebody can fill you in.

Hello and welcome to the third book in MORI Hiroshi’s Saikawa & Moe series!

We are currently polling for a start date over in the book club’s home thread.

For the schedule, the chapters are of pretty equal length, and therefore my suggestion is to read one chapter per week (see OP). Please note that the page counts might not be 100% correct because I re-calculated them from the ebook, but it should give you an idea.

I can fill in the correct page counts if somebody provides me with an index of the physical book, but I don’t think it’s that necessary for us anyway. (But please speak up if you think that it would be a good addition to have the real numbers!)

Happy reading everybody :blush:

Annnnnnd - here is Week 1!

I’ve taken the liberty to pre-date this week’s start to Dec 24th. I highly encourage you to read at least the first two or three pages on that day :slight_smile:

I really like that we’re going by chapter for our schedule. Easy to know when to stop so I don’t spoil myself with knowledge meant for future weeks. (Just have to remember that each chapter has several parts :durtle_durtverted_lvl1: )
