# Crimes against mathematical constants

**Crimes against mathematical constants**are crimes against mathematical constants (nonfiction) along with other aspects of mathematics (nonfiction).

Many branches of mathematics (nonfiction) have been exploited for criminal purposes: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics, Gnomon algorithm functions, etc.

Math viruses, usually developed and committed in math labs, are used in crimes against Gnomon algorithm functions.
