Numb3rs

I haven't been posting regular Numb3rs summaries for the new season, because I've been disappointed with the new episodes; they appear to be using math mostly for throwaway comments, rather than actually trying to get into any specifics (Farey sequences, the Art Gallery Theorem, and cellular automata being some examples).

They did mention curvelets though, when doing image reconstruction. This particular reference is interesting because, as Shankar Krishnan informs me, one of the top experts on curvelets, Emmanuel Candes, is actually at CalTech, and Caltech's math department has been providing technical expertise for the show.
