Consciousness research used to be decidedly leftfield. But no longer. Scientists are debating seriously if we can establish general theoretical bases of consciousness. OMCAN is a new network based in @OxUniMaths that is helping coordinate the effort. maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29542 pic.twitter.com/DupaYRhvBP

It's the same as everywhere else. And it's different to everywhere else. Students from schools that don't usually think of @UniofOxford get a taste of @OxUniMaths thanks to UNIQ, Oxford's flagship outreach programme. maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29454 pic.twitter.com/ZZH2DbqPrz

E. Coli is an example of a disease whose cellular metabolism behaves differently as environmental conditions change. But how do we model such specific changes? @marianobegue from @OxUniMaths Research investigates. maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29537 pic.twitter.com/qAF496PkIL

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. @OxUniMaths Research investigates maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29492 pic.twitter.com/6UJiG6ok9d

Identify crisis? Well not for Roger, but maybe for one or two others. @OxUniMaths London Public Lecture, 30 Oct @sciencemuseum sees Roger Penrose reflect (and no doubt project) together with medalwinning @FryRsquared. More info maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29352 pic.twitter.com/CreoiACumm

You can lead a machine to water but can you make it drink? Teaching machines will require many branches of mathematics. Algebraic topology and stochastic analysis are playing an important part. @OxUniMaths Research from @viditnanda maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29483 pic.twitter.com/APoJGsaN9u

There is no shortage of Summer programmes for the mathematicians of the future (thankfully). But in the unexpected heat of Summertime Oxford, @PROMYS_Europe is a little different. And they get to hang out with Andrew Wiles (see below). maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29423 pic.twitter.com/JKWMMpnlBh

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 20182019 @OxUniMaths Public Lecture series. maths.ox.ac.uk/events/public… pic.twitter.com/0MP33Tle0s

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 @OxUniMaths Research is on the case via stochastic optimal control techniques. maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29334 pic.twitter.com/3uooPawuOi

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. @OxUniMaths Research. maths.ox.ac.uk/node/29330 pic.twitter.com/Hg1ITi51To

We have just put up our 100th @OxUniMaths Research casestudy. 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. maths.ox.ac.uk/research/case… pic.twitter.com/sAlcCDhh7k

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