The Numbers Behind NUMB3RS: Solving Crime with Mathematics
by Keith J. Devlin and Gary Lorden
Sunday, May 5, 5:30 pm

Using the popular CBS prime-time TV crime series NUMB3RS as a springboard, Keith Devlin (known to millions of NPR listeners as the Math Guy) and Gary Lorden (the principal math advisor to NUMB3RS) explain real-life mathematical techniques used by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to catch and convict criminals.  From forensics to counterterrorism, the Riemann hypothesis to image enhancement, solving murders to beating casinos, Devlin and Lorden present compelling cases that illustrate how advanced mathematics can be used in state-of-the-art criminal investigations.
