Radcliffe Observatory Quarter - Mathematical Institute
A new building for the new Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford will create an intellectual and physical environment in which mathematical culture can thrive, and in which teaching and research can enrich each other. The new purpose-built facility – one of the first in the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter – will nurture the next generation of mathematical thinking and scientific breakthroughs.
Bringing together pure and applied mathematics
The new Mathematical Institute will unite the Department – pure and applied – under one roof. In addition to a strong track record in pure mathematics, we are also renowned for our strength in the application of mathematics across areas such as finance, theoretical physics and biology. The new building will enable greater interaction between these groups, allowing them to share and develop innovative ideas for tackling problems of great significance.
In addition to housing the various research groups, the building will provide a warm and welcoming space for undergraduates, postgraduates, faculty and visitors to interact in both formal and informal scenarios through the provision of state-of-the-art lecture halls, teaching and seminar rooms and social areas.
