Mathematics and Sex

There is a unique book sitting on the shelf of the Math Library at UCLA. Admittedly, it is a samizdat (self-published) book. But it is typed and bound and sits with perfect dignity alongside many another august tome. It is:

Sex, Crime, and Functional Analysis
Part I: Functional Analysis
by J.D. Stein

[S.G. Krantz, Mathematical Apocrypha, The Mathematical Association of America, (2002), p. 9]
