Starring Math: the Numb3rs Edition

A monthly series hosted by Ingrid Daubechies

Each month in the coming year, MoMath’s 2023–2024 Distinguished Visiting Professor, Ingrid Daubechies, will host an hour of discussion about a featured episode of crime drama Numb3rs, a television series (2005-2010) in which a Caltech professor uses mathematics to assist his older brother, an FBI agent, in various criminal investigations.  Join us for an engaging conversation around each episode’s connection to mathematics, either in its content or its creation, and be sure to cash your vote at the end of each session to help decide which of the 118 episodes will be chosen for the following month!
