ACTOR Carlo Rota is in uncharted waters these days. It's not the gripping what-on-Earth-will-happen-next situation his character Morris O'Brian faces Mondays on Fox's "24," but he says it's strange nonetheless. "I'm newly single," he explains. "I've been a serial monogamist since I was about 17, so it's kind of odd." Of course, it must help that Rota, who also appears in the Canadian series "Little Mosque on the Prairie," is on a hit TV show, right? "Well," he says, "it does have its perks."

WHERE there's smoke, there's Jack Bauer. Hollywood's Les Deux, with its charming private patio, would have been perfect for the Fox "24" Season 5 DVD launch party Dec. 4. Except for a deadly mixture: cigar fumes and a plastic tent that created a mushroom cloud of secondhand smoke. More than 150 stogies were lighted in the first hour, turning the fete into a "24"-esque thriller: 1. Nervous suits with headsets watched Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) embrace Audrey Raines (Kim Raver). 2.

Ken Follett's historical novel "World Without End," a less beloved sequel to his much beloved historical novel "The Pillars of the Earth," has become a miniseries - a sequel itself to the 2010 miniseries "Pillars" became. Set in the 14th century in the fictional English market town of Kingsbridge - there is an actual Kingsbridge, but it is not this place - as well as in France and Italy, it follows the matter of the first book by more than a century, but hits some of the same themes in the same ways.

Discrete Thoughts: Essays on Mathematics, Science, and Philosophy by Mark Kac, Gian-Carlo Rota and Jacob T. Schwartz (Birkhauser Boston: $34.95) For reasons unknown, people have different ways of apprehending the world. So, it is said, if you find truth, you shouldn't say, "I know the truth," but rather, "I know a truth." Beauty, like truth, comes in many guises.

In a famous essay called "On the Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Physical Sciences," Eugene P. Wigner, the Nobel laureate in physics, asked why mathematics does so well in describing and predicting physical phenomena that no one had ever seen before. Newton's laws could predict artificial satellites, Einstein's theory predicted atomic bombs, and 20th-Century cosmology predicted black holes in space.

Halfway through Monday's back-to-back episodes of "24," Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) stormed an apartment full of terrorists without a helmet, got into a deadly shootout and defused an armed suitcase nuke. But close-up shots revealed skin that was both nicely tanned and completely dry. Not bad for a guy who got released from a Chinese prison just hours ago.
