Abstract / Synopsis

Prime Suspects is a delightful graphic novel that performs what might, prima facie, seem almost like an impossible feat. Apart from the aesthetic pleasure it provides by being a well-illustrated and well thought out graphic novel, I would describe its major conceptual goal to be that of conveying to its reader a taste of the exciting nature of mathematical discovery. This is accomplished by focusing on a set of results connecting the study of prime numbers, the study of cycles of permutations, irreducible polynomials in finite fields and more.
