Working with mathematicians, Cox also explores impossible abstract forms, discovering wholly invented territories. Forms bloom like flowers from the seeds of equations in the fertile soil of computers. One looks like a Venus figure before it evolves on the computer screen, sprouting wings like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. "We had no idea what this surface was going to look like," she says. The program works best when it weaves art, math and history into one enlightening tapestry for example, tying together Picasso's approach to depicting multidimensional reality with mathematicians' efforts to understand four-dimensional space. After discovering the four-dimensional mathematics of Brown University's Tom Banchoff, artist Robbins reports: "It was as if I could plunge my hands through the computer screen and handle this four-dimensional cube like quicksilver, changing and turning inside out. . . . For days, I dreamed only of these images." The visuals work better than the talking heads, but the writing is often eloquent and the ideas are deep. Math not only allows us to see what is, but what could be. "I'm trying to find what new things are possible," says an architect of virtual structures he will never inhabit. Glover sums up the program well when he says: "With mathematics we have created a doorway to the universe of the imagination." "Life by the Numbers" airs at 8 tonight on KCET -TV Channel 28.

Hollywood Reporter THE REEL MUSIC V OF HOU.YWOOD cf i: mm b Prime-Time TV Rankings CBS Breaks Past the Competition for Weekly Win The NCAA championship basketball game between Utah and Kentucky helped CBS post an easy ratings victory, based on the scorecard for last week issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. Although the NCAA audience dropped 6 compared to last year, CBS' winning March 30 performance with the game, another solid Sunday night and budding viewership of the Tuesday drama "JAG" combined to push the network past the competition. Figure skating, meanwhile, received low scores from the Nielsen judges, as ABC's coverage of the world championships finished fourth Saturday night. Fox continues to demonstrate the appeal of so-called "reality programming," as the new series "World's Wildest Police Videos" chased down the network's biggest Thursday audience for a regular program in more than three years. In addition, "Unsolved Mysteries" which returned on CBS after nine years at NBC improved results in the network's 9 p.m. Friday slot. Cable highlights included the launch of HBO's 12-hour docudrama "From the Earth to the Moon," co-starring Stephen Root, which touched down Sunday with stronger-than-usual ratings by the pay channel's standards but didn't approach the impact of another recent cable offering, the USA network's "Moby Dick." -BRIAN LOWRY National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (March 30-April 5) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average number of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates that there are 254 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older.
