Oxford Mathematics' Vicky Neale discusses Euler's Number with Melvyn Bragg


Melvyn Bragg and his guests, including Vicky Neale, Whitehead Lecturer here in Oxford, discuss Euler's number, also known as e. First discovered in the seventeenth century by the Swiss mathematician Jacob Bernoulli when he was studying compound interest, e is now recognised as one of the most important and interesting numbers in mathematics. Roughly equal to 2.718, e is useful in studying many everyday situations, from personal savings to epidemics.

Course Structure and Facilities

Information on the structure of the degree course and the facilities available in the Mathematical Institute and Department of Computer Science.

Course Structure

The mathematical side of the course concentrates on areas where computers are used, or which are relevant to computer science, namely algebra, general topology, number theory, combinatorics and logic. Examples from the computing side include computational complexity, concurrency, and quantum computing. 

The course will consist of examined lecture courses and a written dissertation. The lecture courses will be divided into two sections:
