A grad student of mathematics takes a rather esoteric approach to developing a thesis. The dean^† brings the student to discuss the paper since the faculty have been unusually distracted by the draft paper being passed around the building.

The student thinks he was brought in for disciplinary reasons, but the dean has other reasons.

^† we assume the dean acts as an administrator rather than as an expert if necessary for the story.
