Subject: Riemann inspired Lewis Carroll to write Alice's Adventures in Wonderland<br> and Through the Looking-Glass (?)

That is what Wikipedia says, citing an article from 2004
that is inacessible to me, ref. 4 at the Wikipedia page
on Riemann.

Cf.:

Section on Riemann's influence:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernhard_Riemann .

The Wikipedia page on Lewis Carroll,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Lutwidge_Dodgson

shows that both books appeared after Riemann's 1859 paper,
which some say made Riemann "famous" within a short few
years.

The Wikipedia page on Lewis Carroll gives no hint of
an influence of Riemann on Carroll ...
