The curious property that John Farey observed in one of Henry Goodwyn's tables has enduring pratical and theoretic interest. This book traces the curious property, the mediant, from its initial sighting by Nicolas Chuquet and Charles Haros to its connection to the Riemann hypothesis by Jerome Franel.
