Oxford Mathematics 16h
Consciousness research used to be decidedly left-field. But no longer. Scientists are debating seriously if we can establish general theoretical bases of consciousness. OMCAN is a new network based in that is helping co-ordinate the effort.

It's the same as everywhere else. And it's different to everywhere else. Students from schools that don't usually think of get a taste of thanks to UNIQ, Oxford's flagship outreach programme.

Chaotic behaviour is most commonly associated with the climate or the flow of fluids. But the human body is not immune and the impact on the production of blood cells in particular is not fully understood. Research investigates

Identify crisis? Well not for Roger, but maybe for one or two others. London Public Lecture, 30 Oct sees Roger Penrose reflect (and no doubt project) together with medal-winning . More info

There is no shortage of Summer programmes for the mathematicians of the future (thankfully). But in the unexpected heat of Summertime Oxford, is a little different. And they get to hang out with Andrew Wiles (see below).

You spin the wheel and flip the coin and surrender to the random world. Or maybe you don't. Maybe chance isn't such a big hitter after all. If only we realised. Persi Diaconis kicks off our 2018-2019 Public Lecture series.

Time delay is the bane of the financial trader sending orders to an exchange - best prices can be missed, orders not fulfilled. But don't worry Research is on the case via stochastic optimal control techniques.

Often mathematics is portrayed as a series of discreet, isolated specialities. But the truth is more connected. Take Nodal lines for eigenfunctions, a topic in pure maths that stretches across many fields in maths and into physics. Research.

We have just put up our 100th Research case-study. The most popular? Well you might think the applied guys have it, but the fundamental maths is proving just as popular. Work driven by pure intellectual curiosity. Have a look.

From the maths of crime and the brain, to the maths of Primes and Escher. Our Public Lectures tell it how it is. Maths can be complex, challenging - but it is telling us about our world. They are all online.
